Can you help me?
Have you ever stumbled across a project in your unfinished box that you you didn't remember starting? When I first came across these butterflies I had totally forgotten about them. There were some pieces cut out and I finished sewing them up. I now have 46 butterflies. However, to make a king sized quilt I need about 60 more. I would like to continue with only having 1-3 butterflies out of each fabric, and fat quarters are great for this, but they've really come up in price since I started this project 6 years ago.
I have been searching the remnant areas too, but a friend suggested that I ask my friends to donate fabric swatches and turn it into a friendship quilt. So here I am asking if you happen to have a 10" square piece of fabric you wouldn't mind mailing me to make a butterfly, I'm sure it would only cost one postage stamp to mail such a small piece.
If you'd like to help just send me an email lisa(at)lisaschaos(dot)com. It takes a 10" square for each butterfly, 20" for two, etc. The fabric should be cotton, cotton/poly, etc as long as it's a non-stretchy fabric we're good. I love recycling fabrics, so pieces of old shirts, napkins, etc are welcomed. Above, you see the fabrics I have used so far.
