Flitter Finish!!!

I finished up my Flitter quilt and my girls are so super thrilled!!!   They have already decided it should rotate beds each night for the foreseeable future :)  So fun!!! 

The fabric is a Butterflies and Berries 10" Stacker by Riley Blake Designs that I got in my Sew Sampler January Box along with the exclusive Flitter pattern.   Isn't it just an adorable pairing of fabric and pattern.  So cute!!!

I just love this little pattern and I am so glad I decided to rotate the layout of the butterflies as it just shows off the variety in the wings.  And I realized I still had to add a blue border from the last time I shared it and I am so glad I did because it really sets off the design.   And then the little white binding (which has a metallic silver dot!!!!) is just the perfect little finish.   I just love it!!!

When it came time to quilt it, I decided I wanted to keep this super soft so I opted for a super loft batting and more minimal quilting.  I love the loop de loop and I thought it fit well as it could be reminiscent of a butterfly flight pattern.   And can you tell in this picture that I quilted it with Hot Pink thread!!!   I tend to quilt with colors that blend, but this one is for my wee ones and they just love pink so I went loud and proud this time, and they are so, so, so loving the Hot Pink!!!!

And remember that extra block  that I sewed up without realizing it . . . How cute does it look pieced into the back!!!  Now I can write a special little tag to my little princesses :)   And you can really see the quilting and loft in this backing.  It is just so ready to be snuggled in!!

And that is my Flitter quilt all finished!!   I am just so happy to have it all finished up because it makes my girls happy, and that is the perfect kind of finish!!

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!  

Linking this finish to Amanda's, Sarah's, and Myra's :)
