When I was going to Glengarry Elementary school, Petra invited me after school to see her father’s entomological collection. Peering at wooden cases of dead bugs under the dim basement lights, I was slightly repulsed, but fascinated. The butterflies in all their sizes and colours, were, of course, my favorite.
It’s funny how one day can have a lasting impression. The passion of a man to his hobby in the evening hours, the devotion of which I could relate to a short time later became a recurring theme throughout my life.
When Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket quilts designed the Butterflies quilt, it brought back the fascination with the colours they came in as, after all, everything I have been impassioned by was influenced by colour.
Recalling the various colours, I had lots of fun pulling the fabrics to create the Butterflies kit which we now have available for sale. The sample is completed and hanging in the store.
If you click on the picture, it will take you to the link on our webstore for this kit, and a larger picture. It’s for the collector in some of us.
