First Annual On-Line Quilt Show...My Favorite Quilt


April 2005

My dear friend Mary loves butterflies. It just so happened that my DH had given me the
book "Butterflies of North America' by Jeffery Glassberg for my birthday, which I truly love. That is when the idea began to form. I incorporate a few of the butterflies from his book to the quilt using embroidery method. Mary did not know I was doing this for her. It was a nice surprise for her. *smile*
Now, be sure visit Park City Girl's blog, and enjoy all the wonderful display of quilts participating in the festival.
