Agnes' glitter butterflies

Agnes appliqued these glittery butterflies to please her grandaughter. It was quilted with the pantograph Butterfly Charm by Lorien Quilting.

  1. Wow! The backing is very cool and what a pretty quilt for a young girl. I personally love the little pinwheels as the cornerstones. Quilting a butterfly was brilliant!

  2. The pieced backing really was a great idea. It's very possible that as Agnes' granddaughter outgrows the sparkly butterflies, she'll love the modern geometric back more than the front. It's a two for one!
