Lady Butterfly

Lady Butterfly by Aisha Lumumba

The featured quilt of the week in the May 2, 2010 edition of the Start Your Week With a Quilt newsletter is called Lady Butterfly and it was created by Aisha Lumumba.  Aisha says she imagined what it would be like if we could sprout wings and soar above the troubles of the world. I think this lady would find a way to have fun.

The blue background on this quilt makes me imagine that Lady Butterfly was going through a period in her life that was not so great. But when the wings sprouted, life may have still been blue, but that dress and that hair made it all just a little bit better!
