Invite Martha, Marilyn, Maxine, Catie and Douglas to your garden party. You have never seen anything like this before. Graceful flowing butterflies with pieced wings, lacy embroidered motifs and elegant decorative stitching. Douglas the Dragonfly looks as though he has just landed on the daisy quilted into the background. Catie the Caterpillar will make you smile as she crawls her way along the quilted log. Constructed entirely in the hoop, even the stippling. Great on clothing too.

I made butterflies and friends as one of my first HoopSisters designs. I duplicated the number of blocks for the wall hanging and did the caterpillar twice and mirror imaged them and placed them in the middle of the quilt. I made it as a gift for a new baby in yellows and blues.

Butterfly's and Friends has been the most fun I have had in a long time making a wallhanging. The beautiful colors inspired by the personality of each lepidoptera and friend is what makes this little quilt come alive. I plan on making several in different colorways for friends. I cannot wait to get started!
