I was so happy to share the butterfly quilt with all of you.
It is all quilted up now and actually gifted.
I can now share some more information with you about this fabulous quilt.
One of my oldest and bestest friends has cancer.
She has had 2 surgeries and will be starting radiation therapy very soon.
This quilt was made for her.
I wanted her to have something to take with her during the treatments to keep her warm, wrapped in love and hopefully a little cheered up.
Two of my co-workers and I made all the butterflies for the quilt and I put it all together.
I had to wait for the fabric, as you know, to actually finish it up.
What you don't know is that I hand embroidered a label and I love how it came out.
The saying was soooo appropriate for her!
My friend, and an amazing quilter, Liz, did the flower/butterfly quilting and it was perfect!
I got a sun dappled photo but that's all I had time for.
I love love love the back.
This rainbow fabric is to die for!!
I had one extra butterfly so I put it on the back and it made the perfect setting for the label.
I had to decide how to wrap it up for the gifting and this is what I did.
I think it was perfect!
I gave it to my friend on Monday night and I think she was thrilled.
We have been friends so long that when I asked her if she could pick out the butterflies that I had made she got every one of them right!
Not a single wrong guess!
She said it was my fabric choices.
The one made out of blue dragonflies was the first one she guessed.
I really hope she knows how much she is loved and how much her friendship means to me.
I am a better person for having he in my life!
This quilt was a true joy to make and to gift.
