Why is it I fall in love with nearly every single quilt I make? Maybe it has something to do with choosing fabrics I love and endeavouring to create something which highlights the beauty of each fabric. Maybe it's the delight of seeing an idea slowly coming to life, little by little, as the fabric slips through my hands, over and over again.
Bringing together some of my favourite fabrics in Butterflies in Blue has been very satisfying. Each butterfly print (Fauna in Dusk) triangle is echo quilted in soft white, then I straight line quilted the Cirrus in Sky surrounding fabric in matching diagonal lines with light blue thread.
I'm excited about this binding too - Plumes in Turquoise, another beautiful fabric from Sarah Watson's 'Biology' collection for Cloud 9. All fabrics, threads and batting are all 100% organic cotton. Hand stitching the binding will be a pleasure, one of my favourite steps in creating a quilt. Looking forward to another finish soon.....
