CONHO21 Unusual Appliqued Butterfly Quilt
71 x 81 inches
New England

I have never seen this wonderfully happy rendition of the Butterfly pattern. I feel that a very creative woman was the maker of this quilt. really makes me smile. There are 54 butterflies that seem to be in flight! Fifty butterflies are an array of depression era fabrics, while the 16" x 24" center medallion has six Depression era solid color fabrics. The middle yellow sashing is 3-3/4" wide while the outer yellow sashing measures 4-1/2". The applique work, buttonhole stitches outlining the butterflies, as well as all embellishment, are beautifully executed. The quilt is closed with a 1/4" separately hand applied binding, sky blue in color.

This quilt has been lovingly used and only shows wear on two sides of the binding. We can restore these with same date fabric if desired...please ask for information.

Now organically hand washed and ready to be sent, with free shipping, for your approval.
