Emerald Isle & Comfort quilt

Today I took a break from Lily to work small. I used multiple layers of semi-transparent & different textured fabrics for the sea. The mountains are made from gauze that I painted. This is the start of a piece I'm making for the Irish Dance auction. I'm thinking I may mat & frame it rather than bind it, as it's fora non-quilting group, & I'm thinking it might do better if it were framed.
Below is the a center detail of the quilt I finished on Lily yesterday. Can you see the butterfly?
Here's an overall view of the comfort quilt finished. I'm satisfied with how it turned out.

Oh I love it Deb! Thanks so much.
I've fused 4 plowls so far for the auction so at least we'll have 5 handcrafted items amongst lots of gift certificates! :-)

That Emerald Isle is a beauty!
Have you considered mounting it on foam core?
