My butterflies came back to me

During March I wrote about a butterfly block swap I was entering.

You always take a risk with this sort of thing because you can never be sure if you will like what you receive in return but I was not disappointed.

All the blocks that came back to me were crisp and bright, so what could I do but make another 8 so that I had something to work with.

They did not take long to come together but needed a something extra to finish them off so I added a four patch border make up from our pre cut stash.  A lovely bright outcome in the end.

This turned out to be quite a good scrap busting project as I made my butterflies from our pre cut stash as well.

At just over 40" square this will make a nice and bright wall hanging for our sun room when it is quilted.

I love what you did with the blocks and the border. This would also make an adorable baby quilt as well as a wall hanging.

I've wanted to make a butterfly quilt for forever. This one is so pretty and I love the way the border suits perfectly.
