Design Floor Monday

I have a finish on my design floor - Yay!!!  


I don't know if you remember, but about 7 months ago my cousin and her girls left the earth. My cousin was a quilter, and so is her mom. So her mom took her projects and is finishing them up. This one was a little bigger, so I got the honor of quilting it!!


I am quite tickled with how it turned out. The girls loved bugs, and butterflys, and ladybugs - so....


Its called the Crazy Dutchman, and I love how my Aunt set it in a rainbow fashion....


I quilted a butterfly in the corner, and trailed feathers out of it through the whole border.





Then in the middle of the outer border there is another butterfly, flying in the border toward the others.

This is the back - you can see the flutterbys a  little better as they were black thread.





I am really excited that I got to finish this. I know its not much, but I like to feel I was a part of helping get L's projects to finish. We met up with my aunt and uncle Sunday for brunch in Cheyenne, and I got to give it back to them. Made my heart happy!!!  Thanks for listening.,

I love the quilt and how it connects you to family, but I have to say that the thumbnail shot had me thinking that you had 3-D piles of blocks rather than the quilt.
Great way to lay out this quilt!

Love this quilt and the thoughtfulness in which it was finished.

Do you know anything about this quilt? There is quite a discussion on the yahoo group of quilt designers. They believe it was stolen. The seller is giving different answers to emails.

Im sure this was quilted with lots and lots of love. I hope you remembered only the happy times while you worked on this. Love the flutterbys....

What a clever quilt! And your quilting is perfect for it.

What a heartbreaking story -- definitely not a happy ending but a wonderful quilt. You must be filled with so many happy memories and miss them terribly.

Beautiful quilt, how wonderful you finished it for them. I think I would have had to many tears to get it quilted, great job.

Wow, you do some gorgeous quilting. Do you think you could come move to Utah and be my quilter?
