Vintage CQ...Butterfly Invasion

I have been working on this project off and on during this spring-into-summer. Slowly, a seam here or there between other goings-on....

I've let this gradually unfold....

But all of a sudden a giant cloud of butterflies has alighted onto this quilt!

I am "catching them" with this nice old black perle cotton that the lovely Freda sent to me awhile ago.

Here are two more! That third one in the upper left is waiting for the blocks to be all sewn together before it will permanently land on the seam between them.

When they are all sewn on I'll post more pictures. I'm so glad they showed up....!

Embellishment at it's best! Attracting a swarm of butterflies - this would make one smile.
