I added more quilting to the circles and around the appliqued pieces.  Lastly, I pieced and appliqued the butterfly to the top.  I had difficulty squaring the quilt but I think it came out pretty good.  I made a label for the back.  Modern abstract has not been in my wheelhouse for quilts and I'm glad I took this course.  I also included a second quilt based on this process.
