    Several years ago I found these hand appliqued and embroidered butterflies and also (different time, store and date) I found these Sunbonnet Sues. Now to put them into a quilt. I'm not good at dating fabrics but to take a wild guess, I would say 1920 or 30 ish. What you say? Enjoy, I am.

    Must think of a color for background and sashing

    The butterflies are extra nice because of the variety.

    Terrific thrift store finds - ever wonder who did the original work & what their intentions were for the pieces?
