Finish It Up Friday...Grandma's Butterflies.

My grandma had a set of these butterflies she painted long ago.
She used to sell the paints and do classes on the painting.  She loves butterflies and mentioned that she'd like to have them put together into a quilt.
 Her birthday was Saturday and I got it finished just in time.  I didn't have quite enough of the purple to do all the sashing that color, but I made it work.  The back is a green with yellow flowers.
 Unfortunately, she was in the hospital on Saturday and then got moved to a larger hospital right after lunch.  We took her the quilt and a bit of watermelon with an unlit candle on top :)  She should be coming home in a few days to enjoy her butterflies.
