The butterfly quilt is finished. I had my two little professional models demo it for me. I have never made a quilt like this and it presented some challenges. First off I had to get the pattern blown up by 400%. That required a trip to the local copy store. Then I had to sew curves which turned out fine but sewing around the angles did not go so well. I am not sure what the secret to that is so I will have to investigate that area if I ever make this pattern again.
The colors came out really great on this quilt. The recipient, a seven year old girl, chose all the colors herself (I helped a little). Her color scheme came out nice. I putt a little extra stuffing in the body portion of the butterfly. This is not what the pattern called for but I think it gave it an extra nice touch. I can't wait to give this to her. I know she is going to love it.
I am a full time working mom of twin boys. My passion is my children. My hobby is quilting. This blog is my quilting journal. I love to share my quilts and arts and craft projects with friends and family. After a long hiatus of taking care of twin babies and then running after them as toddlers I finally have the time and energy to quilt again. I love sewing as my sons sit beside me or play near my sewing machine. Who knew boys could be so interested in quilting.
