brightly colored butterflies

Still loving this combo of low volume prints paired with vibrantly colored prints! This is a remake of my Flying Farfalle quilt I made years ago, and I think it’s fun to see the two different looks.

I love how the vibrant butterflies pop on the low volume backgrounds, especially from afar, and I love how those background fabrics provide lots of extra interest and depth to the quilt.

I kept the quilting simple – two straight lines running diagonally through the blocks and through each ‘butterfly’.

The backing is mostly a lovely soft cotton couture pink solid, along with a strip of those low volume leftovers and it’s bound with a Lizzy House jewel print in pink.

This one will be another that will be for sale in June during Nido’s artist pop up!

    I love everything about this post! And as always just wish the quilt was larger so I could justify purchasing! Nido is going to be especially beautiful during the month of June :)

    This quilt is beautiful! Can I ask what kind of batting you used? Your quilts always have a certain “look” when they are finished, which I love!

    Very sweet and cozy looking. I love the minimal quilting you did on this, it gives it a very soft and vintage like feel!
