One More Charity Finish...

One more finish for the Carolina Hurricane Quilt Project.
 This quilt top was sent to me from a fellow quilter to finish for the project.  
I love the rainbow of Kaffe fabrics against the crisp white background don't you! 

I found a purple patterned backing and had enough left over to use it for the binding too.
The rainbow of happy colors reminded me of a flower garden so I used a pantograph of butterflies fluttering along for the quilting pattern using a white King Tut Superior thread: 
I plan to machine sew the binding down tonight, pop the quilt into the wash, then it's on it's way to: .

  1. That's a beauty. I love that you used a butterfly pantograph... Someday I'll finish my butterfly quilt. Are you still taking outside orders for quilting?

  2. Fabulous, Val, thank you so much!! Give precious Jackson a tummy rub for his expert quilt inspection.

  3. What a lovely quilt—and the butterfly quilting is perfect for it. I think Jackson approves. I’m so glad you can still do some quilting. I hope all is going according to plan with your move.

  4. Beautifully finished, Val! The piecing and fabric selections are lovely, and your butterfly quilting is just the perfect touch. Happy Independence Day! :)

  5. What an unusual use of Kaffe fabrics, but effective nonetheless. Good choice of the butterflies for the quilting. Thank you for donating your quilting services for a very worthy cause. I hope the whole moving thing is, well, moving along. Good to hear from you.

  6. That's a delightful quilt ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ‘Œ

  7. What a gorgeous quilt! Lots of work into it, and high five to you for helping out with the quilting and binding. There's never too many good deeds in this world. Bravo!

  8. Beautiful! I love the butterfly quilting--great choice!

  9. Beautiful! You picked a great quilting motif for the quilt. Thanks for the address for the Carolina Hurricane Project, I do have some quilts I intended to send, but lost the address and then couldn't find the website.


I have to admit, your comments make me smile! Thanks for sharing and for letting me know you stopped by. I Hope your day is awesome!
