My Dark Butterfly quilt is finished! I love its rich tones with the contrasting aqua and mint. This is a large lap quilt for a friend. There are two prints with butterflies, a tan and a mint green toile, and the aqua has ruminations about a garden in brown ink.
It must be the influence of all the supernatural shows at the movies right now, or perhaps because Halloween has just passed, but this quilt has a magical quality for me. Although there is nothing mystical about the prints, the writing on the aqua fabric and the little pictures on the tan and mint prints make me think of Merlin's book of spells.
I'm hoping its recipient is pleasantly charmed and feels warm and loved as she snuggles under it on cool evenings. Blessed be.
