What is Black and White and quilted all over?

A team of ladies made this quilt for a niece that just got married.  Isn't this a cool quilt?!
They looked through my binder of doodles and drawings and picked out a couple they liked.  They decided on this butterfly ribbon design with a few flowers here and there for the border. 
In the center I did flowers, swirls and leaves.  It's hard to see the quilting in the busy-ness of the fabric.  I had to really pay attention to where I was quilting with this one!
I quilted some loops and butterflies, then a flower (maybe every 12 inches or so).  Then I would double back over my loops until I got back to where I started.  Then I would "jump" back to my last flower and do it all again.
