No More Butterflies

The butterflies are now at home with DGD. That is the butterfly fabric which I purchased 5 years ago is now a quilt. Awen as 3 year old was enamoured with butterflies. I as the smitten Grama was taken captive by my GD and her fascination.

The Rabble of Butterflies will reside on a top bunk. I made it longer to tuck into the bottom. My toes (on stool) are level with the steps to upstairs. Yes we have a small living room.

I quilted it with a large all over stipple. Made possible by the purchase of a new quilting table. Don't know how I managed without it.

Awen was delighted to sleep under her new quilt for the first time at Grama's . Lots of time was spent looking for fabrics from projects she recognised. Memories

Have a good week Dear Friends and enjoy the smiles around you.  Terry

How exciting for her to have a beautiful new quilt. There won't be any trouble getting her to bed for a little while

Love that you made memories searching the quilt for fabric from other projects. Some of the best times are the simplest!

Regards, Sue.
