    Montana Flutter

    Name:  Montana Flutter-smaller.jpg
Views: 4405
Size:  420.2 KB Last summer, on vacation in Kalispell, Montana, we happened on a quilt shop. Found this wonderful fabric designed by the owner with local plants. A local quilter also designed this pattern, so I put them together. Background fabric came from a shop in Graham, WA, near the school where my daughter teaches. So this is my memory quilt from a wonderful trip. Hope you like it. I FMQed it on my Janome MC9000.

    Thank you! I thought they were butterflies, though some people who see it claim they are not. Art doesn't always mimic reality.

    Beautiful fabric! I also thought butterflies but after really looking at them they might be moths. Whatever they are they make a gorgeous, and very unique quilt! what a wonderful memory!

    "Hope I like it"? No. No. I don't like it. I LOVE IT! It has such a dreamy yet organic feel about it (if that makes any sense). It's just wonderful & I don't care if they're butterflies or moths or bowling balls! They're gorgeous! That fabric is to die for!!! Thank you for sharing this beauty with us!

    Great job on those flutterbuys, and it's a delightful design.
