Default Quilt for a friend

Here is a quilt that another friend and I made ready for a visit from our Friend G from Australia who is coming in January. I just need to quilt it now but will do that after Christmas. G has lost her husband in October and we wanted to make a quilt that showed happiness and her love for butterflies. We used a quilt called Mixtape as our source of inspiration and used our own fabrics and colours. Oops Pics are still too big but you get the idea. The bottom pic is the work in progress and show the colours better.

Bright and cheerful. The white sashing shows off the bright colors nicely.
