    I went to NewburyPort, Ma today and went into a Antique store and saw these blocks for sale...23 butterfies for 20.00 Woohoo...any of you ladies know what time frame these fabrics are from? Someone did a great job on them. Love them...plan on making a quilt with them.

    My guess would be '30's - '40's. Great find:)

    I think the blocks are from the 30's/40's, too. That or they're very good reproductions. :) What a lovely little group!

    My grandmother had a similar quilt - the butterflies outlined with a black blanket stitch. So charming! :)
