Brushstroke Butterfly Cross Stitch Quilt

I came across this in a discussion over at the Message Boards this week and I love it, such beautiful stitching and quilting work!

Lynn (aka MuskokaLynn) posted a picture of this finished quilt that she and several other stitching friends got together and did for a friend who was diagnosed with cancer. I think you’ll agree that they put together a lovely gift.

I can’t think of a better example to show how much fun it is to play with floss color choices! Each stitcher in the group chose colors from their own stash and the results were outstanding.

If you don’t have the Brushstroke Butterfly cross stitch pattern yet and would like to download it you can get it right here at Stitching the Night Away … <== I wish you all happy stitches!
Kind Regards,

P.S. If you have stitched one of the free cross stitch patterns found here at Stitching the Night Away, we’d love to see it! Please use the contact page and send me an email telling me about your project so we can share a picture of your work here on the site!
