A Few Things Left in Atlanta — Black Butterfly

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

Black Butterfly is one of the quilts that did not make the trip to PITT. I consider it one of our family heirlooms that could not be entrusted to a college student.

I made this quilt when India got her drivers license, but it has always summed up her life to me. I knew she would grow up beautifully and then fly away.

And she did.
