A Very Special Quilt

I have been friends with Betty for many years, she is a wonderful and giving person with a heart full of love and compassion for others. She blesses many people with the gift of her quilting skills. This quilt that she recently made and had me quilt for her was extra special.

(taken from Betty’s post with permission: “For my friend and neighbour Jackie. Her 2 grandaughters Serenity,Kiralyn and their mom were tragically taken from her Feb 13/14. I hope that this quilt helps you heal.”

In discussing how Betty envisioned this quilt, quilted she said that she wanted me to do my thing but to incorporate butterflies as the girls really loved them. I once again used Judi Madsens inspiring book with her butterflies, dragonflies and flowers and freehand quilted for the most part. There is also some ruler work.
