Brushstroke Butterfly Stitched by Gavin


Stitched by Gavin

This very special butterfly was stitched by 9-year-old Gavin as a square for a World of Charity Stitching quilt project.

Gavin has been stitching since he was 7 and I’d say he did a very lovely job of it, plus he has great color choices!

This butterfly is a free cross stitch pattern available right here on Stitching the Night Away. It’s the perfect size for a charity square or a quick gift.

Brushstroke Butterfly Plus a Lovely Quote

The free Brushstroke Butterfly pattern has been stitched in many ways for charities and gifts over the past few years, but I really like the addition of a quote as Nancy has used it here in her gift for a friend…

Beautiful Cole’s Quilts Projects Including Free Cross Stitch Patterns from Right Here at STNA

I love it when I’m browsing around the needlework community online and I stumble across a Stitching the Night Away design used somewhere. It really makes me day a thousand times brighter, especially when I see them used in charity projects like Cole’s Quilts and Love Quilts!

LindaZ posted these on Photobucket and the 123stitch message board this week and they are amazing! Beautiful stitching and quilt finishing by everyone involved!

In this one you’ll spy two Brushstroke Butterfly squares….

And in this one you’ll spy the Celtic Dream Knotwork block, which was designed with charity quilt projects in mind….

Thank you Linda for sharing those pictures and for participating in projects like this!
I love it <3

I am working on charting a few additional words to use with the celtic knotwork border, so if there’s a request anyone has for those please let me know. So far believe, trust, and inspire have been requested and I’ll gladly chart out others. [Read more…]
