Fall Butterflies Quilt
Yesterday I finished this UFO quilt and went out in the rain to get some pictures. It was cold, wet and just a plain old yucky day. The quilt  measures 52″ x 70″.Fall Butterflies Quilt
This was a quilt that I started last December for my granddaughter’s birthday in……January. She was turning 4 and loved butterflies so I found this butterfly print and she helped me pick out some prints to border the quilt. I finished the top but it never got quilted.Fall Butterflies Quilt
Last week when I made the mini twister I had the taupe thread on my machine and pulled this quilt down to start quilting it. When my granddaughter came over last weekend and we were “playing” in my sewing room and I asked her if we should pick some colors out for a quilt and she said no and walked over to this one and said “this is my quilt”. I felt so bad…………so I figured it was time to get it finished. I can’t wait to give it to her!

I put a block of the fabric on the back and then added muslin around it, added Warm & Natural batting (my bolt is starting to get low) and did a fairly large stipple quilting.

After I took the pictures outside I couldn’t wait to throw it in the washer and dryer……I love the way quilts look afterward. You can see it  in my UFO Challenge 2011 post back in December but there are no photos of the piecing….didn’t think about showing the process at that time. This was a pattern from McCall’s Quick Quilts Dec/Jan 2011 called Manor House by Kari Nichols.

Today Builder Bob is going to put me to work…..so instead of staying warm and quilting I will be outside pulling nails out of boards and helping to haul them…………he is thinking two days of work……I’m thinking one!

  2. Snow Connie, don't forget the snow!! You are lucky the wind didn't take those beautiful butterflys away with it!! Isn't it just a great sence of accomplishment when a WIP becomes a whatever it is supposed to be (in this case a quilt)! Your granddaughter will have a great birthday (or christmas) gift this year!! Well done!!

  3. Connie, I haven't been online as much but I have missed your quilts. Your blog is so refreshing! I just simply love this pattern. I think I will try making this one for an older lady I know. Take care!

  4. That butterfly quilt was just the thing to brighten up a dreary day! Hmmmm…I'm with you on the one day work thing. 🙂
