“The Butterfly’s Ball” 2021 Mystery Quilt by Susan Smith
In January, Petra contacted me to ask about having some quilts for her shops. I
decided to make a mystery quilt, and have it also for my sewing club.
I like to use quilts and thought I would make this quilt as a quilt for my bed. It is a
classical quilt, and includes piecing, EPP and some whimsical appliqu .
My father would recite poetry and sing this poem to us when we were children. The
poem “The Butterfly’s Ball and Grasshopper’s Feast” by William Roscoe is a special
poem about the coming together of all society in peace and harmony.
