A butterfly is the pickiest of guests. Invite her for brunch, and she won’t eat a bite—unless you serve her favorite food. (Milkweed for monarchs; white cedar for hairstreaks.)
On evening strolls, the weather must be perfect. If it’s too chilly, your fluttery friend will simply stop, drop, and nap.
And no matter how lovely the guest room, it won’t tempt Miss Butterfly. Oh, she may request a posh butterfly house. But rest assured she’ll never step inside.
This week Jenny is stitching up a layer cake butterfly quilt fit for a queen. She’s using the easy 16 method to whip up dozens of half-square triangle wings, and right in the middle stands a butterfly house. (Which, as we know, the butterflies will never use!)
Australia is famous for its many national treasures: The Great Barrier Reef. The Sydney Opera House. Koalas and kangaroos. And, of course, the ridiculously attractive Hugh Jackman. You may not know, however, that Australia is also home to some of the best quilters in the world!
On a recent trip to Australia, Jenny picked up this pretty new quilt pattern from a local quilter. (What a souvenir!) Click HERE to learn how to turn your half square triangles into a “treasure” from the Land Down Under!
