Blogger's Quilt Festival - Entry 2 - Butterfly Quilt

Monday, September 19, 2016

Amy Elllis of Amy's Creative Side is hosting the Blogger's Quilt Festival this month. Quilters can enter up to two quilts in the various categories. It's a great way to meet some new bloggers and see what others have been up to in the quilting world!

My second entry is my Butterfly mini quilt. I could have entered it in a couple different categories, but I decided on the applique category.

I made the butterfly quilt as part of a blog hop for Pat Bravo's Dare Fabrics.

I love trying and learning new things, and this quilt helped me learn several things!

You can take a look behind the seams and read more about the quilt on my original post here.

I used a reverse applique technique to create the butterfly. I sewed and quilted the entire quilt on my vintage Bernina 930 Record.

  1. Laura, your butterfly quilt is certainly a beauty! I am impressed with how the wings are mirror images of each other...I'll bet that was a challenge! The colors, the quilting, the outline stitching are all perfect! I have not tried reverse applique yet, but now I want to try! I am hoping to get a quilt entered into this festival too!
