Butterfly Fling Squares

I made this baby quilt in December, 2008 for my niece, Kate who was about to be born.  I love the colors and how cheerful this quilt is.  My big accomplishment with this quilt…my first experience with free motion quilting.  I did a simple loop pattern, and I learned so much!

The finished quilt measures about 36 x 45.

    It’s so nice to see this all put together! I myself have 160 charms of this! It was the first thing I bought when I decided to start quilting. They’ve been sitting in my stash for me to make a quilt for my 5yr old. I finally bought a cute pattern that uses charm squares. But of course I keep getting sidetracked on other projects. But this is really cute and I LOVE patchwork quilts. I’ve made 2 just like this one (w/ Moda’s Sultry and Sleepytime) After seeing Butterfly Fling all put together, maybe I’ll just have to bust them out and start another project! Very cute quilt!

    Thank you Jen! :) I too love charm squares, and I love the simplicity of leaving the squares as they are, so you get that cool patchwork look and can really appreciate each charm on its own. I’ve got a whole bunch of Butterfly Fling fat quarters as well as one more charm pack, and time will tell what I decide to do with them–likely a bigger version of the above quilt! :)

  • Youre so cool! I dont suppose Ive learn anything like this before. So nice to search out anyone with some unique thoughts on this subject. realy thanks for beginning this up. this website is something that’s needed on the net, somebody with somewhat originality. helpful job for bringing one thing new to the internet!
