Surprise - I Love You Butterfly Quilt

...not quite done. Still have antennae to do and a white blanket stitch around the heart and letters.

I have quilt shop Moda flannel for the back and I am putting a light polyester batting in the middle

The colours are off - it's lavender with a super dark pink letters/border but you get the idea. I've cut out and have the blocks done for 4 more quilts. The border fabrics may change a bit due to lack of fabric stock (I'll get more as close as I can.

It's about the size of a crib blanket. This photo is really washed out. Will have another once everything is completed.

I Love You!
Peggy

An adorable quilt. Love the butterflies. The fabric you used really makes them come alive. Lois

I love the use of the solid colored fabrics, which bring out the colors in the print butterflies.

Excellent design!

I love it! Great colors - great design-hope you sell many, or as many as you can make :)

I suggest you make a boy version! The same but with a boy applique. You could go crazy with this design and make a generic version with a teddy bear or whatever!

I have a ton of ideas for quilts - I was thinking of making a pattern proper out of this and sell the patterns in time. I do have an idea for boys as well. And sometimes the fabric prints give me ideas for patterns. My sewing will improve over time. It's not manufactured so when I have my little quilts to sale there will be some things not perfect but that is the charm of home/hand made quilts. I don't have a fancy embroidery or sewing machine. And given practice I will get fussier and fussier over my workmanship. I'm looking forward to this journey with my fabric crayons.

Thank you everyone for your kind words. My next quilt I'm itching to do is a bird print....in blues.
