With everything going on in the world right now, and particularly in the USA, my own country, I was taken back to a song by Jackie DeShannon, popular during the 1960's, entitled, "What the World Needs Now." The lyrics continue, "what the world needs now is love sweet love," and so I my quilt was inspired by the lyrics from both songs. I used a stained glass technique to create the butterfly.
The butterfly sits upon a flower that is a stylized peace symbol, another throwback to the 60's era.
The lyrics from the song are free-motion quilted in my own handwriting.
The applique top-stitching serves as quilting. Here's how it looks from the back.
I hope you like this quilt...my first submission. I'm looking forward to seeing all of yours.
