I just love this quilt! I know I feel this way every time I finish a quilt, but this one is really fun. I think it is because I love butterflies. This line of fabric is called Butterfly Fling from Moda.
I used a layer cake to make the front of this quilt along with 15 inches of fabric for the pink squares. I saw this quilt at our "Quilting in the Country Quilt Retreat" last year and several of us wanted to make it. I think at least one other person from the retreat has made this pattern. It is an easy pattern. You choose layer cake square and then match it with another square that you will cut in 4 pieces to outline it with. I actually cut all my pieces first and layed them out before I started sewing. I changed the pattern slightly by making my pink square different from the original pattern. One of the hardest parts of making this quilt is deciding where to put your fabric. It is fun arranging the colors, but sometimes difficult to arrange everything so it looks just right. It was also a fun task though.
This is the quilting done by Merlene from Nelda's Quilt Shop. I asked for daisies and butterflies to match the fabric and this is the design she came up with. I love it, don't you? The color in this picture is wrong. See the next picture for a more true picture of the color.
I am a firm believer in labels. Sometimes I feel like I am writing a book instead of a label, but I want to include all the information. My labels are made by Nelda at Nelda's Quilt Shop.
I hope you have enjoyed this quilt. Like I say, I just love it.
