Who doesn’t love butterflies? ? Joyce Turk painted these lovely creatures on a white silk background. She embellished the quilt with crystals to accent the butterflies and to add balance to the four corners of the quilt. 

Joyce quilted this little piece of art on her machine in a meandering pattern with variegated thread that capture the colors of the butterflies. The quilt measures 10x10 inches.

The back of the quilt is a complimentary green and blue fabric. There is a label on the back that documents the quilt. This quilt is one-of-a-kind.

This art quilt was created and donated to the Atlanta Quilt Festival by Joyce Turk, an African American quilter, who lives in Atlanta, GA.
