Another one completed

Yes I have completed another quilt----even quilted it. The pattern is from Quilter's Cache' but it listed as a 12" block, I reduced the block to 9". I ordered my fabric on line and had enough for the butterflies but the background was a bit tight to get all the blocks made. I had planned to use the background for the border but ran short. So a trip to the LQS to get border and fabric to bind it also. I machine quilted butterfly wings in the HST blocks and smaller butterfly's in the open spaces. This quilt will be going to a women's cancer center near Renton, WA after April of next year, 1st it has to make a few rounds of friends and a trip to Calif. to show it off to my Mom and Nanna. I know that there isn't much of the background but it is from the Hoffman collection----mind went blank on it's name---but I knew it would be the backing on this quilt. This didn't make my tops list come down any as this one took about 2 months to make, only about 3 hours to quilt---couldn't believe how fast I quilted it, once I got it loaded on the frame.
