May ~ Little Quilt

Can it be possible?  Is it May already, the fifth month of  2012?
The April showers have brought beautiful May flowers
and today we find Teddy with his basket full of blooms and his gardening tools, surrounded by butterflies of every color.


The butterflies are hand appliqued onto a little quilt, sized 18" x 18"


and echo-quilted by hand;


it's perfect for Teddy.

Have a good day, Charlotte

  7. This is just darling. We have so many butterflies this spring. They are a delight. Not much rain though. I'm praying we don't have another drought this coming summer.
    You do such lovely work Charlotte. My friend is bringing me a sewing machine tomorrow - a used one. I am so eager to get started on some quilting!
