Who doesn’t love butterflies? I fell in love with the quilt the second I laid eyes on it. Butterflies are a symbol of piece to me and I just love them.
I loved the Butterflies quilt pattern the first time I saw it and had to make it. I used fabrics from my stash and spent the weekend cutting out the butterflies. I made this quilt for my daughter’s bed. She flipped out over it when she saw what I was gonna make her. She actually jumped in and helped me cut out the fabric pieces and we had such a fun time doing this together. I just know she’ll be a quilter someday!
I grew up sleeping under a darling quilt with umbrella ladies in southern belle dresses that my Grandmother made. I remember tracing the pretty embroidery work with my fingers as a small child and thinking that I wanted to be one of those pretty ladies when I grew up. That quilt was washed to death and was finally thrown away by my mother. I was heart broken as I wanted at least a piece of that quilt. I’m sure that my daughter will have her quilt for years to come and probably pass it down to her daughter some day.
