    I made a quilt with appliqued butterflies on it back in the early 70s. I have made to two quilt a couple of years ago with butterfly fabric. I still have 4-5 yds of a lavender background W/ butterflies of different colors, I plan to make a quilt with it one day.

    Butterflies are a sign of "NEW BEGINNINGS" so I especially like them in a quilt for someone going through a tough time. Besides, they're colorful and make me happy. Ditto dragonflies.
    Keep smiling, it makes others wonder what you're up to!

    Butterflies are coming back in vogue again. My MIL loves butterflies and has been getting a few pendants from the local jeweler as estate pieces. I have a quilt kit I bought for her. I've finished piecing it and now I need to quilt it.

    I think since the I Spy quilts came out, any insect goes! I do have several pieces of fabric with some gorgeous butterflies on them.
