Butterfly Baby Quilt

This was a really fun one. I got this  beautiful layer cake from called "Grendale." These 10x10 precuts were perfect for the large half-hex templates from Lori Holt, but instead of using them as hexagons, I turned them outwards to make what I thought looked like butterflies! 

First I stitched in the ditch around all the trapezoids, then I got really ambitious and cut out a "wings" template, traced it onto my quilt sandwich, and used my walking foot on my home sewing machine to quilt 27 beautiful butterflies! It was actually pretty quick and fun, even though it looks crazy complicated! 

The back is teal minky fabric, and I bound it with pink satin blanket binding. 

I was excited and happy to gift this to my dear friend for her baby Charlotte who was born just a week before Christmas!
