Bloggers Quilt Festival

I have decided to join the Park City Girl: Quilt Festival - Fall 2009, deciding which quilt took some time (as I have many favorites) but I have chosen this one. I made this for my mum for her birthday as she loves blue and soon as I saw it I knew it was for her. Its called Fluttering Butterflies by Lee French and Quilted by Liz Willing (before I was into long arm machine quilting!!).

I like the illusion that the butterflies are weaving in and out of the strip piecing, and the bias binding was sewn on with a twin needle. Liz quilted edge to edge butterflies to add to the quilt.



I am very happy with the end result and pleased to report that it lives on mums bed!!

Nice job! The butterflies remind me of mom and my Grammy who are both passed but still very much thought of. :) Cheers!
