Several years ago I saw this fabulous embroidered butterfly quilt top on ebay. I can’t remember what it sold for, but it was a lot more than I was willing to pay. I did, however, save the photos because I loved it so much and thought someday I would make a similar quilt. I am guessing these butterflies were the quilter’s original designs (and not a from a pattern) because they are so unique. It’s not clear exactly how many butterflies were on the quilt, but there are quite a few detailed photos. I think I could probably make up some of my own designs, but I would also copy some of these patterns.
Because I was so inspired by the originality of this quilt, I thought there might be others out there who would feel the same.
