One of two butterflies on the panel, there are some lovely
touches of blue throughout the panel.
I would love to see the original quilt some day, it is quite interesting how some of the flowers have a semi-solid background behind them, maybe they were intended to be cut out and used for Broderie Perse, as this was quite a fashionable technique in the early 1800's.
You can see the complete range of fabrics over at Quilting Treasures, they are quite different patterns and colours compared with Civil War era reproduction fabrics. I also found a free pattern here for the original quilt (scroll down to Chintz Medallion) and I think I will use the panel to make this quilt, although I'm not sure about fabrics or colours yet, do I put a modern twist in or keep with the traditional? Of course I really should not be thinking about making other quilts when I still have unfinished works to complete but I think that is what keeps us motivated sometimes.
