Butterfly Quilt...

Last year I told you about my "Autumn Butterflies" quilt that I started.
to read all about it.

While at retreat ... I was able to get a little bit more time to work on it after I finished my Sew Cherry Swoon quilt.

This quilt is the perfect project to use as many different fabrics as you can...for alot of variety.
I have chosen fun prints from my stash
that I that I thought would make a great butterfly and would contrast nicely with
my brown solid background.

I'm making 100 butterflies for my quilt and I am about halfway there...

I have started joining them into rows of
 2 x 10 butterflies.
As you can see, these are wonky butterflies and are fun to do!
I cut the wings 3 1/8" x 6 1/2"....
 and added my brown background pieces
(cut 2 1/2" x 4 1/2")
 to each side of the wing on an angle.
I trimmed them up and sewed the wings to my brown gingham butterfly body.
(cut 1 1/2" x 6 1/2")
You can follow Amy's tutorial just like
I did if you want to make your own!

That will be a awesome quilt. I like the brown background much softer than black.
Wonderful fabric for the butterflies.
