Butterfly in the Sky Quilt

Although I finished this quilt a couple months ago now, I have yet to give it to my 4 year old niece, but her parents say that she’ll love it.  I made this for her because she loves things with wings (and loves pink, so I made sure to include pink in it).  Also, my brother tells me all the time how he accidentally calls his daughter by my name because she is a lot like me (I am about 7 years younger than him).  I can’t wait to give it to her next time I see her (they live in another state, by the way).  It was very fast and easy to make.  I found a free pattern here (but I don’t see it on their list of free patterns any longer).  I got the fabric from The Meandering Thread (and they are so kind).  I think the only thing I’d do differently now that I am seeing the photos on display would be to use a pink thread for the applique borders around each butterfly, but it is still lovely as it is.  The backing was a bright pink fabric (you can sort of see it through the light in these photos here too.

Hope you like it, just as I liked making it! ButterflyMeihaquilt2thumbButterflyMeihaquilt1thumbButterflyMeihaquilt3thumbButterflyMeihaquilt5

  1. I personally would love this as a little girl. I like it at this age! She is blessed to have you and your talented quilt making skills 😉 Homemade gifts are the best.

    1. I have to approve comments. It doesn’t go into spam (I deleted your repeat comment). hehe. Thanks so much! I really hope she will like it, but I think she will. Now I do hope her older sister will like the quilt I am finishing up for her (she is 17). It is harder to make teenagers happy. hehe. She’ll probably like it though too.
