It looks like one of the top themes emerging from Spring Quilt Market was Butterflies! So we had to share this gorgeous interpretation of the trend by Deirdre Bond-Abel of Hat Creek Quilts. What sets her look apart from the rest? The stunning mix of wool applique on cotton prints, more specifically the Marcus WOOL COLLECTION paired with INTRIGUE prints by Nancy Rink. Deirdre named the quilt pattern, “Borboleta,” the Portuguese word for “butterfly”.
“When I first saw the bright wools at Market last May (2015), I thought “butterfly sampler” so I have been waiting a while to have time to make it. The wools are just divine, the colours so beautiful and the quality of the fabric is first class. The wools combine so beautifully with the Intrigue prints “
