Progressing on my daughters Butterfly quilt, with a little delay waiting for more of the white sashing fabric to arrive. I decided that the quilt will be best served by having a simple white border and that meant more yardage of the cute white swirly tone on tone print would be required. While I waited for its arrival I used the 4 leftover blocks & small bits of the white that remained to work on her shams. So, what looks like a wall hanging in the photo will actually be cut apart again after quilting to become a pair of big cushy king sized shams! In spite of years and growth and maturity and even college graduation occurring since I began this quilt for her, she loves it and still wants it...so with any luck, it will be done for her birthday this summer.
Butterfly Quilt from the Buggy Barn book Celebrated Craziness.
Sashing inspired by the Atkinson Designs pattern Slideshow.
