The Sawtooth Star


The Calvert Barn Quilt Trail Committee of the Arts Council of Calvert County is pleased to announce the installation of the eighth square hosted by Butterflies & Wishes Teas & Sweets, 3819 Harbor Rd., Suite 106, Chesapeake Beach, MD 20732, owned and operated by Sandy Walker-Samler. We also wish to thank Phil and Joyce Pfanschmidt for their sponsorship of the square.

The two-sided square is inspired by two quilts made by Sandy's grandmother. The side seen from the exterior of the shop window features a Sawtooth Star, with a checkerboard border. If visitor's are fortunate to arrive during business hours, see http://www.butterfliesandwishes.com , they can enjoy a cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate along with freshly made pastries and scones and view the inside square featuring the "stitches" of Sandy's grandmother's beautifully embroidered floral quilt.

Sandy and her husband Alan were deciding whether opening a tea shop was on their path, when Sandy thought of her Mother, who had passed away, and asked for her advice. A beautiful Monarch butterfly appeared and stayed close to Sandy throughout her morning. Sandy knew her Mother was sending her a message to make her wishes come true and Butterflies & Wishes Tea & Sweets became a reality, and is a lovely, whimsical place to relax and reconnect with friends and family.
