San Miguel Quilters donate butterfly quilt to CASA’s anti-violence efforts
By Carolyn Simsarian
This quilt was conceived, designed and created by the San Miguel Quilters, an international group with members from the American, Canadian, and Mexican communities. The Quilters regularly contribute quilts to non-profit groups in San Miguel. Proceeds from this quilt will benefit the Violence Prevention Program at CASA.

The butterfly motif signifies the hope for change and healing with the emergence of the beautiful living organism from the cocoon. Using the San Miguel Walk’s symbolic butterfly, a design was agreed upon. Background fabric donated to the quilters for use in charity projects was chosen. Members selected materials from their collections to render the layered butterfly. Each square was quilted individually with backing and batting. Beads and other embellishments were added to enhance and give sparkle to the quilt. Individual squares were joined with contrasting sashing. Contrasting perimeter binding completes this stunning quilt.
The quilt will be on display and available in a silent auction at the Art and Soles event scheduled for Sunday, March 10, at the Marilo Carral Espacio at Fabrica Aurora.
