This is a paper pattern for an oriental inspired applique quilt by Smee Designs. It features butterflies inspired by ancient Chinese embroideries from the 16th to 18th centuries. A common design device on clothing, bags and homewares, the butterflies were embroidered in tiny silk stitching in brilliant colours, often outlined in white thread on dark backgrounds. Try the lap quilt with white background, or go black for something truly exotic!
