    tis the season...i have many fabrics from the 70's & 80's with butterflies too- they tend to come out in abundance in the summertime.

    I have noticed there are a lot of digital quilting patterns with butterfly's to go along with the fabrics.

    Fabric Freedom has had several butterfly fabrics the past several years.

    I have butterfly fabric which is more than 10 years old, so I don't think it is very new or unusual. I actually prefer the dragonfly designs which are becoming more commonplace.

    Butterflies are not new. Many years ago my mom made several butterfly quilts and she won a very nice rocking chair and chairside lamp at a local quilt show, both with her butterflies. I love them. She and I were driving downtown and she saw some large cardboard butterflies in a floral shop window. She asked me to stop and see if we could trace a pattern off them. I wasn't crazy about it but did stop and when I got into the store a young boy about 16 came to the counter and I asked if I could trace one of the butterflies. He looked at me like I was dangerously insane and went around a wall and said to a lady back there, "There is a lady out here who wants to TRACE one of those cardboard butterflies in the window, WHAT do I do?" She told him to give me a piece of paper and a pencil and let me trace one. I was so embrrrassed! She made a quilt from that pattern and cut enough for me to have a quilt also...well worth the trials!

    I have seen a lot of dragon fly prints also. They all are pretty.
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...

    I just made a baby quilt with butterflies because that's how the mom was doing the room cause She likes butterflies. They have been around for quite sometime but I do think they are going through a bit of popularity right now.
