This is a closeup of my first quilt. I hope these pictures get in order. There are to many of each one. and I don't know how to get rid of them.
This is my butterfly quilt. first one I made and there is a story behind it, I said I wanted to make a quilt but didn;t know what pattern. My husband said make a butterfly quilt. His grandmother had made one while she lived with them when he was a teenager. His Mother said there was a box on the attic that might have some of her sewing stuff in it. So I found the box and yes, there was the pattern from a New York paper. The old cardboard templates she used. So did I. It is all hand stitched. I didn't realize this was a diffecult pattern, If you look close the block is on the diagonal and is made in two pieces and then the body of the butterfly is sewn in the middle.. There is one block that is pieced wrong. My Mother visit whle I was making it and made one block. She said no more. I just let it like she did it.
