|Butterfly mini quilt, measures about 20" x 16.5".|
I made this little quilt as an angel mini for the IG mini swap--though whether or not it will be needed after all is up in the air. If it's not needed I have a couple of other ideas of what to do with it.

I used Aurifil 40wt for the first time, it quilted beautifully! I used medium blue-grey (#1310) and grey-blue (#5007). I used 50wt #2605 in the bobbin and didn't have any issues with the tension or needle. My sewing machine loves Aurifil!
|Butterfly quote reads: "Just when the caterpiller thought the world was over it became a butterfly." I quilted this part the day my grandma died, and it seemed rather connected...though I was obviously distracted (typos).|
The butterfly is made mostly out of bright, modern scraps I have. It's always fun to use scraps in new ways!
