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!!

Your Flitter quilt is adorable and the quilting design is perfect! You're lucky that your girls decided to share instead of playing tug-of-war with it.ReplyDelete
So pretty Melissa!! And if they really change beds with it every night, you might have to make up another one: maybe with a deep purple background! ;-) Have a great weekend!! Hugs, HReplyDelete
