A few years ago the Guild gave us a paint chip challenge. I received brown, gold and green. The colors looked like sunflowers. I had to make a sunflower wall hanging.
I had several sunflower embroideries in my file so I used them.
My signature butterflies were recolored with the correct colors. I use these three butterflies often, usually on my quilt labels. They can be colored to go with the quilt.
After all the pieces were embroidered, I sewed them together where they fit.
Making a piece out of colors that you don’t usually use is sometimes difficult, but it helps you explore different options. It’s good to get out of your comfortable box.
Have a great day and happy quilting.

Do the three butterflies have a special meaning?
Years ago, when I did a lot of embroidery, I made these three butterflies and really liked them. I started to put them on all my labels. They have no really special meaning. I just like them.
