Why, that’s a lovely butterfly quilt!

Carolyn Greenplate of Codorus Township submitted this photo to one of the YDR’s many photo galleries. She wrote, ‘I had my granddaughter learn some embroidery by stitching the butterfly bodies on this quilt. We copied the design from a quilt my mother made for her hope chest in the early 1940’s. I used some fabric scraps from clothes and projects sewn for Lydia over the past few years.’

While children would probably rather be at the pool, playing outside or playing video games in front of the TV, crafts can be good for some down time over the summer. When I was 9 years old, I remember my mother taught me how to sew on a sewing machine. I made a quilted pillow, which still exists and lives on my sofa at my apartment.

Keep quilting, Carolyn and granddaughter!

    I didn’t see this posting you did for me. I actually now am working with a friend’s daughter and hope to get her to finish her butterflies also, so I can construct a quilt for her bed. Thanks for the kind words.
