    Hi thought you might like to see this properly.

    I made this from a book called 'Quick Quits to make in a weekend'. It made up really fast - in an afternoon and evening!

    I embroidered the butterflies using my Bernina embroidery unit.

    I love the colours, my daughter chose them and we bought the fabric at last years Festival of Quilts, in Birmingham (UK not Alabama!!)

    In a day? That is amazing - and what gorgeous colours. I have the Quick Colourful Quilts book - I am making one up, and it is taking a bit longer than a day .. .

    It was the technique - all pieced in strips and then the black and striped sewn together and cut up using the 45 degree angel on the 24 inch ruler - very clever - and VERY quick!

    I love your quilt. The butterflies are perfect. How wide were your strips? I think I'd like to try a baby quilt with this pattern.
