Grandmother's Butterfly Garden - Finished

Finished! My small quilt that I call Grandmother's Butterfly Garden is finished and posted on my etsy store. This quilt is hand-pieced, hand-quilted and machine raw-edge appliqued. it was fun to make and has my typical 'one-off' touch. I could not just do a Grandmother's Quilt - it had to be just a little different to be me.

While I was working on finishing the photo's and posting to etsy, I noticed we had new neighbors move into the back yard. I didn't even know anyone was looking at the place.

This should keep the squirrels busy for awhile. Big T's birthday present from CA looks really good out there and we can see it perfectly from the kitchen table.
