The Minnesota State Fair ended one week ago. Finished up just in time, I entered my butterfly quilt this year. A third place finish was a nice outcome considering that the Sweepstakes winner was the first place quilt in my category.

After submitting the quilt, I did have some time to make a pillow sham and decorative pillow. The sham was made with custom dyed fabric and thread painting similar to the quilt.
For a decorative throw pillow, I did an on-line search for paper piecing butterflies and found a really nice site (https://lillyella.com/2015/09/02/butterfly-charm-block-paper-piecing-patterns/). I really enjoyed using my dyed fabrics to make the butterflies for the pillow.
