Standard

Several years ago I just had to have this fabric:

Butterfly Fabric

I bought a half yard of it for about $5, ┬áthinking it would be useful somehow in one of my art quilts……
I have since learned that it is best to use fabric that does not look like the object you wish to represent – in other words: don’t use butterfly fabric when you want to create quilted butterflies.

I thought this fabric would be relegated to a shelf in my studio for a long time.

I was wrong…
