Butterfly Fantasy

Oh you should have seen all the wonderful challenge quilts from our guilds challenge. They were all a lot of fun. Above is most of us with our quilts.

We could enter our quilt into either an Art category or Traditional. No rules for which category you had to put them in, you could just choose. So my joke quilt which I put in Traditional is above. I wanted to do Tonya's letters and title it - The Best Butterflies are Dead Butterflies. But I just have been too busy at work so went with small and sweet.

My real entry was placed in the Art Quilt category. So what do you think! I thought it was really funny! And so did a lot of people! Not bad for throwing it together in a week huh!

Must not have been since I won 2nd place! And here I am with my butterfly ribbon! When I get some time I'll post some more quilts - they were amazing! Below is the Grand Champion of across both categories. Oh man - was it GORGEOUS!

A very nice art quilt and very humorous. What a creative mind you have. And how fast you are at making it.

The green & cream/white? quilt is wonderful. Looks like trapunto.

That grand champion quilt reminds me of Wedgewood Jasper Ware china from Stoke on Trent in England - beautiful! Love your joke quilt too!
