A quilt done for donation. The butterflies are not embroidered. I had them for a long time and used them here in desperation. My machine had to go for service and as I was finishing the quilt mysterious stains appeared. Apparently my machine was oiled to well and left stains as I was doing the binding. I am sure who ever receives this quilt will not mind.

Lovely quilt. What a nice thing to donate.

Try some salt where the oil wicked onto the fabric. Let it sit and then just dust off. I don't know how long it has to sit but I've done this and it worked.

I will definitely try that should it happen again. Thank you for the hint.

Lovely - great color scheme too.

Wow! What a lot of work Angie it is gorgeous. I love the butterflies on the sides too. My Husqvarna machine never needs oiling, so I've never experienced having oil stains. do hope you can get them out. Love Chris

According to Baby Lock no oil is needed on the machine, but when you bring it in for cleaning (plus a issue) the tech apparently does oil it. I could not get one big stain out hence the butterflies for cover up. They were not planned, but made a pleasant addition out of necessity

It's gorgeous and has such lovely lively colors. I love the double patterns that show up when you look from this distance.

Very nice feeling to it - I think it's the rhythm of the pattern and the colors combined. Lovely work and I like the butterflies.
