This has been finished for a couple of days, waiting to be photographed. Our weather had other plans. With temperatures in the negative digits my photo shoot took place indoors. Don't get me wrong I love snow but I don't like freezing my patootie off in order to get a good picture. It's a pretty good bet that those temps wouldn't be good for my camera or phone camera.
Anyway...this was a quick and fun way to use up some scraps. The four patches are 2.5" squares and the the solid blocks are 4.5" squares. Sashed with 1.5" strips. Doesn't get much easier than that!
The hardest part was drafting the cute 8" butterfly blocks, but once the pattern was drafted they went together in no time.
It's so cozy and soft due to the low loft poly batting and the minimal quilting. No fancy free motion to weigh down the butterflies flight, just straight line quilting done on my domestic machine.
For the backing I chose to use up some not so loved yardage from the stash. It's a field of flowers for the butterflies playtime.
There can never be to many ginghams and plaids in a quilt so I pulled some green plaid from the stash for the inner border and binding.
She folded and ready for her flight to my grand daughters house.
