My starter block

A group of quilters from my local quilt guild decided to start a round robin. One of our members then moved to Wisconsin; so it will now be a traveling robin; then her daughter wanted to join in on the fun. We bounced around ideas and decided to go with the grid idea from Pat’s Book “It’s Your Turn!”. I like birdhouses and just love butterflies. Butterflies I learned from my mother-in-laws funeral are a symbol of eternal life. I never knew that before the funeral; but now the awe and love of butterflies is even stronger. My grandma also loved butterflies which is what started to appreciate them when I would go hunting for a butterfly for a present.

Back to the grid. The only request for my quilt is that there is a butterfly or butterflies somewhere on the block added to the grid. I managed to finish the block shortly before guild tonight so that I could give it to the next person on the list. I have never been involved in a round robin before so I hope this one goes good.
