Crossing Off






No matter how the light falls on my Butterfly Kisses quilt, the play of colours and patterns pleases the eye. With only a dozen squares (of 117) yet to quilt with little crosses, the end is in sight. I'll soon be needing to start the fifth skein of embroidery thread - then onto binding before adding this one to my bed as our nights continue to drop in temperature.

I can't help hoping that the butterflies are symbolic of transforming healing for your husband....

this looks so beautiful. i love the fabrics and that butterfly is awesome. i was intrigued by this method of hand quilting....it looks so great, and is such a fun new way to put the quilt together.

Beautiful Karen! I love the colours in this quilt!

I've never quilted anything with the little crosses, and I like the idea! I generally machine quilt and it is exhausting! :-) I tied a few of the blankets we made last year for the homeless vets, but I think this crosses idea is ideal!

Jana said...

lovely, greetings from tulipland!

I think you will enjoy it Marie, I know I have. I used my ironing board to hold the weight of the quilt, adjusting the height to whatever worked best, tucking my chair in next to it. I found it easier to keep the quilt smooth like this without needing to use a hoop.
