It's just a flimsy for now.
78 x 87
I wanted to make it as a way to use up some of the butterfly fabrics from my stash but it hardly used any butterflies at all so I guess I see another type of butterfly quilt in my future.
For the background of each block I started out using some dark floral backing fabric left over from My Favorite Things Hexie Quilt as you can see here in those four darker batik squares.
I knew I probably wouldn't have enough of that fabric so some blocks have a darker butterfly fabric for parts of the background as you can see here...
...and here. I've had that floral fabric I used in the sashings for quite awhile too. It was heavily, heavily discounted so I bought several yards which is unusual for me.
Anyway...I love how it has turned out so far. Now I will see what I have that I can use for the backing (I'm trying to stay on a "no buy" diet) and then it will go into the hand quilting pile. Won't that be fun to quilt on a dreary winter day. Color is the best anti-depressant I know...right up there with butterfly gardens.
