    Looks like a Pam Bono design. I just love her work and made a lot of her patterns. Great job and great colors

    "WOW" seems to be the operative word for this quilt. I, too, love Pam Bono designs. These butterflies just floor me! The Pam Bono book that I own includes two designs that are on my bucket list:"Primrose" and "Grandmother's Violets." But these butterflies are beautiful.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    The pattern is Butterflies are Free by Pam Bono and is King Size 104 inches square

    From start to finish it took 3 weeks

    Thank you for looking
    AWESOME I love it and you and your daughter sure did a fast and fantastic job, thanks for sharing!!!

    Very beautiful! I have long admired Pam Bono designs but have been chicken to try making one! Are the instructions easy to follow? Templates or straight cutting?

    WOW - 3 weeks, that's amazing and the quilt is absolutely gorgeous. Nice work. I have 1 or 2 of her books, but haven't made a quilt from them as yet, but they are on my Roundtoit List.
