Butterfly Mini Quilt

Sunday, November 1, 2015

I pattern tested a paper pieced butterfly pattern (available here) for Aylin Nilya (@aylin.nilya) - another Instagram "friend." I used a Moda charm pack of Soho Chic fabric by Sandy Gervais. I had won the charm pack on the Missouri quilt shop hop from Carol’s Country Quilt Shop in Van Buren, MO (now closed). I had to be very careful when piecing, as I didn't have much extra fabric at all!

When visiting our friends Jeremy and Laura in Omaha, Nebraska, Laura and I visited several quilt shops. One of the shops had a few of the Soho Chic fabrics, so I bought three of the fabrics to use for borders and backing.

I quilted it by stitching in the ditch around all the pieces in the butterfly wings so the quilting wouldn’t distract from the butterfly design.

I printed a label on printable fabric and ironed it onto Heat-N-Bond then ironed it onto the back of the quilt.

I mailed it to my friend, Traci, for her Pay It Forward 2015 gift with the Bible verse 2 Corinthians 5:17 – “In Christ, you are a new creation!”
