QuiltDragon, butterflies were very big during the Depression years. I got my pattern from a book of vintage patterns. Can’t wait to see how your quilt turn out! Every quilter needs a Grandmother’s flower garden or a Dresden Plate! 

I hope the AQS show works out for you Janet!

Comment by Janet/MO on Monday

Lynne love all your blocks together.  I am going to keep my fingers crossed that we can meet up in GR in August as I'm wondering how many more years AQS plans on having a show in MI.  

QD can't wait to see your quilt finished too.

Handstitcher, the butterflies are a really pretty idea. I don't know how many I'll need, but you can never go wrong with butterflies! Thanks

The blocks look amazing, Lynne! It was truly be a quilt to treasure. Lucky you with that box of vintage finds! That should keep you happily occupied for the duration of our confinement.

QuiltDragon, I’m glad you like the appliqué idea. Actually, I only had one rip to hide, but PrairieQuilter Jan suggested I add more butterflies to make it them look like part of the design. It was great advice. I think the 5 x 4 set will make a nice size.

Sorry Lynne & handstitcher....will try to keep y'all straight. Of course the easy thing would have been to go back to see the posts! :)

Lynne, the blocks all together are beautiful. I'm really looking forward to seeing it all put together.

QD,, it was handstitcher that added the applique butterflies.  

And not only did I not find any fabric that would work for Broderie Perse, I'm not that crazy about it.  Just doesn't do anything for me.

Barbara, thank you!!  No this quilt will be sash free and border free.  This project was learning about 1830-1850 applique.  For the most part, the fabric I used, was classified as to be from that time line.  Yes, I have an extensive 1800 stash.  Also borders were not used during that time,,, mainly borders were started with the Baltimore Albums.  Jeana provided valuable information in our packets.

have to have the right fabric to inspire broderie perse.  Seems as if none "spoke" to you for this project, so not needed.  Lovely, lovely blocks, Lynn.  You are planning to not add any sashings, correct?  They do look wonderful side by side.

Janet, I agree with the size. Actually, I looked at Lynne's quilt again and saw the butterflies she put over some of the bad spots on that quilt. So, I went through the 4 blocks I had left over that I thought might be damaged too much to use. I washed them today & I actually found 3 blocks that can use with some creative applique. That means I'll have 20 blocks with will make 5x4 blocks. I'm looking forward to working on this since I've always liked Dresden Plates.

Lynne, I agree broderie perse isn't for everyone. I may use that for butterflies on the Dresden quilt. We'll see what happens when I get it put together.

Sorry about the sun interfering with the one block,  I did 19 of Jeana's block, and added 6.
