    Those are Swallowtails and they are probably on their migration route back to the northeast. Very pretty! My sister is in Wickenburg - will have to ask her if she's seeing them.

    I'd say it's inspiration for a new quilt for you to make.

    And if you need a little more inspiration ... here's a quilt I made last year for a wedding gift.

    OK, Girls--- I am having a hard time here, because there is a butterfly machine like these at the casino and I saw a lady playing and all these butterflys covered the screen and she had just sat down and it gave yer $400 and some dollars. It is 14 miles from here, should I just stay home and sew or?????

    Thanks! :)

    The colours (on my monitor at least) are not very good.
    Most of the butterflies are bright and vivid.
    They are flying around on a moss? olive? green background.
    The printed fabric is a soft yellow background with the greens, taupes and butterflies.

    The backing is the green and yellow with the fussy cut butterfly squares and leftover pieced butterflies.

    The butterfly print?

    I had bought it sometime ahead with no intention as to what ... just fell in love with it. They had been promoting it for a quilt kit/course at the LQS and it might even have been the Turning Twenty.

    Then one day I saw a pattern which I didn't follow at all ....... though it was the inspiration to create this one!

    Three butterflies at once?

    Maybe you need to "Pay it forward three times"
    Or there are 3 things you're neglecting
    Possibly three different people need to hear from you

    I'll bet if you did those three things you'd feel great and by this time next week - you'll probably know what it meant.

    I'm so jealous because it's still cool and cloudy here in Seattle. Some things are starting to bloom, but nothing as bright as yours in my yard.Oh well, our turn will come - or so they say! Hope it's warmer than last sprng and summer this year.

    I think they stopped by your yard to make your day a little brighter. Then you shared them with all of us. Made me smile!! :-) crafty_linda+b

    i raised them last year, with my 3 year old grandson. i had to plant milk weed in a pot, so they would lay thier eggs..we bought a plastic hamster container, and put the eggs in and watch them transform. it was sooo exciting, Jack put his little finger in there when they turned to butterflies, and got to release them!
