Every once in a while when I’m creating a brand new pattern for a special request, I end up with extra pieces and parts that I can’t stand to throw away. So, sometimes I save them for future projects, and as in the case with this Quilled Butterfly, I create a “duplicate” piece.

The original project was the Quilled Dragonfly with thick wings. The customer wanted a 5×7 quilling, and it had been a long time since I’d created the dragonfly she’d picked out from my gallery. As a result, the first set of wings that I made were too large to fit on the 5×7 background. So there I had these two absolutely gorgeous “wings” and thought that it would be hard to incorporate those colors into something in the future. And they were just so striking that immediately after I finished the quilled dragonfly, I set about to create my own, larger dragonfly.

But, as you can see, I didn’t make a dragonfly! When I got playing around with the wings I decided that it would make a good butterfly. Plus, there was no sense having two identical dragonflies in my portfolio.
