Welcome to those who are visiting from Bloggers Quilt Festival - Spring is not yet here in the Southern Hemisphere but Butterflys still Soar!
I am entering this modern interpretation of a log cabin into the Modern section of Amy's Creative Side - Spring 2015 Bloggers Quilt Festival. Thank you Amy - once again a very inspiring festival.
I started with 5 wonky butterflies and my design developed from there.
When my friend told me at the start of the year that she had breast cancer, I needed to get my skids on and finish it!
I found joining the blocks together to be a rewarding challenge. When blocks aren't square you need to take a different approach.
I wanted to suggests a sense of movement with my wavy quilting - the air would move when a butterfly flaps her wings! It is my "go to" quilting design as it is easily achieved in my 6 1/2" arm on my machine. Tiny I know!
I'm delighted how it has come together... Perhaps my all time favourite quilt and now it warms my friend while she undergoes her chemo treatment.
