HMQS 2013 Riley Blake Challenge Quilt Top Finished!

I have been working so hard on this recently.  I have to get the whole thing done and delivered by Monday, so I hope I can do it!  The deadline was this last Monday but I got an extension, so this Monday is definitely it.

 The fabric is Flutter by The Quilted Fish for Riley Blake Designs.

I fussy-cut a couple of the butterfly bodies.  This pattern is a variation on the Retro Flowers idea.  I used a drunkard's path template to cut the pieces.

I'm still thinking of a name for this one.  My original idea was "Flutterflies," but that just sounds silly.  I'm leaning towards "Fluttering" or "Mariposa" or "Papillion" or some variation.  Any ideas?  I'm also not sure how to quilt it yet.  I'm going to load it tonight and quilt it tomorrow, so I'd better decide quickly!  I'm excited because this is the first real quilt I'll be doing on my new Innova longarm machine.  I'll be sure to take a few pictures of it in-progress on the frame.

Linking up to Finish it Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.
