I am so excited to finish this quilt I haven't even named it yet. Perhaps you can make some suggestions!
Part of the reason I'm so excited is that it has sparked me to design more butterfly patterns. These patterns will be offered soon. There will be two sizes to choose from. One will be 24" and the other will be 12" Each pattern will cost $4.50 plus postage which is $1.25. These patterns can be made in my Stained Glass Applique technique, or simply applique. I have two more sample patterns made, other than the above , and what I plan on doing is to offer another one every couple of weeks or so, I guess until I run out of ideas, or just get tired of making them. So, let me know what your response is. It is going to be an interesting adventure!
For those who belong to the Park City Girl site and will visit my blog, this is my favorite quilt. It was made in Rememberance of Barbaro, who was a Kentucky Derby winner. He broke his leg in a later race, and fought to live for several months. Unfortunately, it was a losing battle, but in the process so many people learned to love him for his beauty and spirit.

Today I am presenting another commission piece. Made as a birthday present for a friends daughter.
This little ten pound dog is getting on in age, and I am really hoping it will be a wonderful rememberance in the years to come.
It is made with the Stained Glass Applique technique . This pattern will be for sale in the near future.
I have been very busy the past few weeks. I showed my quilts to a ladies club, and also to a second grade class. Also, taught a class on the Stained Glass Applique, but this time they worked on making their own patterns, rather than using mine. It is so rewarding to be able to share my experience with others, and to get to show my work is a great fun!
