Butterflies Are Free


I was working in The Bahamas, lecturing on most of the family or out-islands and constantly returning to Nassau as there are no inter-island flights. One rainly Saturday I spent the whole day in the one and only fabric shop there, ending up with all the great fabric you see in this quilt. (and a lot more to add to my stash). As I had no machine while I was there, everything was done by hand so when I came home I had to continue doing hand work on this quilt.

Two years in the making, this totally hand-pieced, hand-appliqued, hand-embroidered and hand-quilted wallhanging is absolutely one-of-a-kind and cannot be repeated. Some of the butterfiles and flowers are padded, giving a 3-D look. I've taken great pleasure in adding small details that are almost the same colour as the backgrounds, so that there is always something new to discover in my wall hangings.
