This adorable fabric was my inspiration for the newest baby quilt that was gifted yesterday at a baby shower. I had purchased 4 FQ of the small prints a few months ago. When I found out my hubby's nephew and his wife were expecting a girl, I headed back to the quilt shop to get some more. I L♥VE this large print I used for the quilt back. The quilt front is pieced from the co-ordinating fabrics and other prints that I had in my stash. I tried working with just the fabrics in the collection and a white-on-white but it seems I can't stop myself from making scrap quilts. I just have so much fun mixing colors and prints together and I love the old fashioned look of a scrap quilt.
I made 6" bowtie blocks (this was quick and easy to do) and what I felt worked perfectly as an alternate block. As it turned out, not only did the alternate blocks have a butterfly print on them but they seemed to make butterflies when I sewed the rows together.
And here's the back. I put 2 layers of cotton batting between and tied the quilt with pink pearl cotton.
I also made a 'kitten' baby shower card but forgot to snap a pic.
