    Butterfly Trellis Quilt

    I saw this quilt pictured here quite awhile ago and fell in love with it. The only thing I did differently was to add the brown narrow border and brown binding. My friend Amy quilted it with a butterfly panto which really looks nice. It will go to my best friend as a surprise Christmas gift - we don't normally give each other gifts so I think she will be very surprised and pleased. She lives in Kansas City (I live in Michigan) so she doesn't get to see my quilts very often. She just moved to a new home where I think this quilt will fit in nicely.

    Nicely done! Love this pattern, since you can just change the block fabric and it can be themed for anyones likes.

    Pretty quilt. It fits in perfectly with the picture that is above - you may just have to keep it and do her another one. LOL.

    P.S. I love the cutie in your avatar - please give her/him a big hug from me.

    What a wonderful quilt! I love the focus fabric, and I love the subtle difference between the sashing of the blocks and the background fabric. You did a fantastic job. Would you please post the pattern information. Thanks.
