Butterfly Garden for Helene

I have been so busy with foster puppies and life that I haven’t been very good about updating my website.  This quilt inspired me to post again.  Susan made this beautiful quilt for her sister Helene.  She bought the hand painted butterflies and then just added some simple sashing and borders.  She gave me the freedom to quilt it however I wanted to.

I used a simple swirl around the outside of the butterflies and I did a little creative stitching in the painted area to help accentuate the flowers and the butterflies.

I added a simple stylized feather in the bottom and side borders.

Across the top border I had Susan write her dedication in chalk and then I quilted over it so that it would be her handwriting.  It is hard to see but it says “Butterfly Garden for Helene – June 2017′.
