Something is in the water for sure. I have several friends at the moment that are pregnant. Congratulations to all of them!! The first one that is due, is my hairdresser, who is having a girl in late June.
I have always loved Juliet @ Tartankiwi’s butterfly paper piecing patterns. It did not take me long to make a decision to make my hairdresser a quilt using these patterns. I am thinking of using a 5″, 8″ and 10″ butterfly, moving up the quilt and the background will be all improv. low volume fabrics.
The first one, the 5″ Butterfly is complete. The main fabric used in this block will driving the color combinations of the bigger butterflies. I am loving the color combinations.
The 10″ butterfly is 1/2 way through. I am keeping with the teal and pink theme.
The last one, I am wanting to pull out that lime green that is scattered in the print, with orange and teal highlights.
If you are interested in Juliet’s patterns, they can be found in Craftsy:
I am hoping to have the quilt finished memorial day weekend…just in time for my last hair appointment before she leaves on maternity. Best news is…this is my May goal for ALYOF…and I have started!!
