Yes, I have a finish! The hand stitching of the binding on the butterfly quilt is done!
This quilt was from a class I taught last year. I think I might be the last one to finish it completely 🙂 I did at least have the top finished when I taught the class, but I am pretty sure my students finished theirs before I did!
I found the pattern here, and got permission to use it for my class. I always try to get permission before I use other people’s patterns or techniques in my classes….
This is not a difficult quilt, but for some reason I unpicked soooo many blocks!!! It’s probably the most unpicked quilt I have ever made – which is very unusual because my motto is :
(I’ll explain that motto in more detail one day…) but this quilt certainly tested my patience – totally my fault I might add, nothing to do with the pattern or designer!!!
Thankfully my students had their wits about them a bit more than I did and had less unpicking to do… here is one of the finished quilts done with lovely batiks:
Another lady chose softer colors for a baby quilt:
I think they were a set of fat quarters she had tucked away for a while… didn’t it turn out lovely?
What caught my eye with this pattern was the way the butterflies are all angled differently…
… I think it makes it look like they are dancing….
Almost finished with packing, tomorrow we are moving furniture out of the apartment and cleaning it… and next week we fly out… the Butterfly Quilt is going in a box to be shipped over in a few weeks… I’m glad I got it done 🙂
