Butterflies

July 21, 2009

Today I’m working on one of Debra’s quilts for her Etsy shop. Libby over at The Quilted Craftsman pieced it. Barbara Brackman’s Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns calls the pattern Austin. I’m wondering if there might be another name for it though. It is pieced in lovely colors with a cream background and dark blue floral cornerstones and border.

Of course it has lovely embroidered patches in the center of each block.

I am quilting leaves and flowers…

I hope that you have a great day doing something you love to do.

  3. Very pretty!


  4. How wonderfully your quilting design complements the embroidery. The quilt is delightful.


  5. Well, you have certainly elevated this quilt to a whole other level! Just beautiful! Thank you for such wonderful work.Now, McCalls and Alex Anderson call that star a "sawtooth" star. With the variation of the darker corners though it certainly could be known another way. I have seen it as a "variable" star also. Barbara Brackman is pretty e-mail responsive so if you really wanted to know…:)


  6. Very nice!


  7. A really pretty and feminine quilt!
