WIP: Butterfly Mini Quilt III

Back in August I signed up for the #igminiswap on instagram (@quiltsnfeathers), and because I'd had such a bad time with swaps up to that point I volunteered to be a swap angel so others wouldn't miss out on getting a quilt!

I was told my new partner likes simple design and modern fabrics.  I did some brainstorming for a little while, and finally decided on revisiting my butterfly/moth quilt (you can see my first one here and my second one here):

Butterfly made using a dresden ruler.

I tried doing things a little differently (especially staggering the wing sections), but don't like how it turned out and probably won't do it again.

Butterfly quilted what?

Every time I get stuck on how to quilt it!  It's such a big part of the quilt that it really makes a difference how I quilt it.  Finally last night while trying to fall asleep I came up with a plan and will get started on it later today.  Hopefully finish it today too, so I can mail it out to my new partner ASAP!


  1. Yay. It is looking good already!

  2. I love the quilting that you've done so far. It really makes it look like the butterfly has been fluttering about.

  3. What don't you like about it? I think it is a toss up between this one and your first for my favorite. I am drawn to the colors in this one a lot, too! :) I hope that the quilting is fun and enjoyable today, and yay for coming up with a plan!

  4. Ilove your quilting. so I cant wait to see it finished.

  5. GAH! That quilting is fab!!
    I am only forgiving you for not blitzing us with multiple photos of the finished tardis quilt bc this is so stupendous...

  6. Ohhh, I love everything about this! The colors, the quilting...!

  7. All of your butterflies are beautiful! You are truly a creative person. I love seeing what you do! I especially love your quilting, because it's such an integral part of your art.

  8. What a beautiful butterfly! And now I can find you on Instagram (which I am still learning).
