Butterfly Garden Quilt Top ~ Complete!

This fabric line called Butterfly Garden is so warm and inviting, and piecing this top was a real pleasure. The pieces are big enough to show off all the fabulous prints in this line too. Take a look at the top...

Butterfly Garden Quilt Top ~ Complete!This quilt is pretty big so I can't get the whole thing in a picture since it hangs over the edges of my husband's pool table (shhh, don't tell!), but the edges have a narrow scrappy row of all the fabrics used in the big blocks, and then another round of the sashing fabric to finish it off.

The backing will be the blue flower print that matches the smaller squares, and the border will be the same blue but only with the dots. I can't wait to get this one on the long arm and see how it turns out! But there are two other quilts in line before this one! I should be getting my appointment dates with the long arm soon and I'll be anxious to show you the finished quilts!

In the meantime, I've been making little zipper bags and just loving it! I started this because of the accessory bag swap I joined from Dandelion Quilts, and then I had to make a few so I could choose which I liked best to send to my partner. And then I found a stash of zippers in my sewing chair and some scraps from the other bags and also from the swap squares I cut for the Shades of Gray charm swap, so I just had to keep making these bags! My package was mailed today to my swap partner, so as soon as she received it, I'll show those bags and the others I have made since.

It's been so cold here lately that my sewing room is a great place to stay warm and productive! How's your winter sewing coming along?

Happy Stitching!
