Lorena has made a few of these fabulous quilts made from 30’s fabrics. She hand embroiders their antennas and the wing details.

She uses meticulous miters in her corners and the quilts themselves look so classic.

I put a meandering ribbon between the butterflies and added in wings on each butterfly. This quilt is  a great example of how something simple can have such a great impact.

I’ve also included a couple photos from the recent Philly show. This one was so striking to me. I love the strips of colors on black and the modern abstract feel of the quilt.
