First Butterfly pattern

This is a picture of my first Butterfly pattern by the name of Anastasia.
The size is 24" but I also made it in a 12"size. Each one is $4.50 plus postage of $1.35. A photo of the butterfly is included. This is the pattern I used in the Butterfly quilt. ( still unamed but I have had some great suggestions). This butterfly is not quilted, but in the actual quilt you will see I used feathers both inside the individual pieces and then on the black background.

For those of you who are Kentucky Derby fans, I thought I would show my Remembering Eight Belles quilt once again.
The Kentucky Derby is such an exciting event, but this year it had a tinge of sadness remembering the valient filly that gave her life for the race. This quilt is not made from a picture of Eight Belles, but rather it was my intention to catch the feeling of speed and determination I saw on her face as she crossed the finish line.

Also, the memorial statue to Barbaro was very touching. I haven't seen it in person yet, but hope in the next few months to take a trip to visit his grave site.

I know I promised to post a new Butterfly pattern shortly, and I am almost there! Keep checking in the next few days.
