Black Butterfly, 70 x 87 inches, by O.V. Brantley, 2008.

Black Butterfly was made to commemorate India getting her drivers license. I knew once she had her license, life would never be the same. I was right.

Now that we are entering senior year and starting the college search process, this quilt has become even more meaningful to me.

Black Butterfly gets its name from a song of the same name  by Denice Williams. The butterflies are appliquéd by hand and embellsihed with buttons and crystals. The machine quilting was done by Ina Sanders.
