    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.

    You can send this beauty to me anytime. You did a great job, the colors are neat. Having your daughter helping is so wonderful.

    Very pretty - and fast! I don't think I could ever make one in that time frame, and I really admire people who can :)

    Love the colors and the workmanship is wonderful. Maybe I should take a trip to Ireland so I could finish one in a day as well. Keep up the great work.

    Oh my, simply beautiful. Reminds me of the Amish quilts we saw on a motorcycle trip across the USA from Oregon to PA. Did you strip piece it?
    Cheers

    Well - it is an Amish design (according to my Amish quilt calender hanging on the wall!!!)

    Yes I strip pieced it - 1 3/4 inch strips in fives and then measured an average width (turned out to 6.5 inch if I remember) then cut a bunch of black WOF strips that wide and sew both edges, right sides together to the coloured pieces then vut up with the 45 degree line on the 24 inch ruler - easy!!
