Jillian Sawyer’s extraordinary stained glass designs can be exported to suit just about any form of craft. In fact, they are ideal for any craft requiring defined segments for each change of colour or texture.
Butterfly features over 30 designs, all of which are represented as line drawings (patterns) and come alive in their full colour stained glass form. Fantasy and whimsy combine with nature as butterflies float amongst fuchsias, lilies and poppies in myriad hues, gorgeous masked maidens are off to the Butterfly Ball adorned in their butterfly finery, and the astonishingly beautiful Life Cycle depicts the four stages of growth in the butterfly’s life.
The distinctly art nouveau influence in some of the pieces adds a further dimension for crafters - Art Nouveau Pendant stands as a piece of jewellery on its own while Art Nouveau Poppy would be stunning in appliqué, embroidery or quilt form. And for the beginner squadrons of Flitterbugs and Flutterbys offer simple yet beautiful fun.
Many of the designs are also complemented by passages of verse and rhyme that share Jillian’s delight and admiration for these little creatures.
As always Jillian’s designs are an inspiration and are perfect patterns for quilting, appliqué, hand or machine embroidery, mosaics, card making, ceramics, glass, silk or china painting.
Butterfly also makes a wonderful coffee table book or gift for those of us who simply love butterflies.
