    Armadillos & Butterflys - Amy Butler Style - sort of (Pic intensive)

    My DGD, age 7, wanted a new quilt for her bed - with Armadillos and Butterflys. She also wanted fabric from the Amy Butler Love collection. This was an interesting project with the motion and designs of the collection, I included some tone on tones to 'calm' it a bit. 2nd applique project, the Dillo's and butterfly are raw edged with invisible thread, the patches are turned edge. This is what I came up with, my designs. She'll get this in a few weeks. I'm happy with it and I know she will be too! I'm going to make her some pillows, dust ruffle, etc. Thank you for looking!
