"Mama's May Flower" from Barbara

This is from a class I took on stained glass. I learned a new method that was really alot of fun have used it on several old stained glass patterns since then.

Barbara, you are so talented.  I have 3 nativity scenes that are stained glass but I have not yet gotten up the courage to start them.  I would love to find a class around here somewhere to take.  

It is a beautiful quilt.  Congratulations.

Actually the fabric for the border (flowers) was material I had gotten to make my mother a housecoat.  But didn't get it done before she passed.  She loved flowers.  The butterfly is a free standing lace embroidery.  Just tack on so that the wings stand up.

That border will make this a great memory quilt for you.  I love the way the stained glass section looks.  What was the "new" method?  I used double fold bias tape and stitched it down with a twin needle...took forever!

Barbara, You did such a great job!  Flowers and butterflies are my passion and you found a great way to incorporate both.
