Antique Butterfly Quilt (King), 90″ x 90″?, Vermont, 2023

This will be another raffles quilt for the Bondville Fair. It is made from antique, hand-appliquéd butterfly blocks from the 1930-40's made by two local Bondville ladies and donated to us.

And Read All Over, 26″ x 59″, Vermont 2023

A play on the childhood joke, "What is black and white and read all over? A newspaper!"

This Stack-n-Whack quilt (Bethany Reynolds) was made as a sampler for a stack-n-whack class I was to reach in January 2022 for my local quilt store Country Treasures. The class did not run in January, but I hope to offer it sometime in the fall and will add a registration link when the time comes. … Continue reading Whacky Butterfiles, 39″ x 99″, Vermont, 2022
