Butterfly Throw Personalized Gift
An office colleague made this lovely butterfly throw as a gift and the simplicity of the design, and intricacy of the execution, is a good reminder that a quilt gift does not need to be - well, complicated.
The throw - a standard one is 50x60 inches - is a good size for a gift quilt. Throws can be used to curl up in and can easily be tossed over the back of a chair or used as a wall hanging.
Secondly, the theme was a universally-liked one, butterflies.
The design could have stopped there but this quilter decided to add some interest in her butterflies by having them in different shapes. Some are solid fabric, others are cut-outs. The variety adds to the overall design.
When joined together, the butterflies make a wonderful visual message of beauty to a parting colleague and friend.
The machine quilting was done on a home sewing machine so this was truly a custom, handmade gift!
