Last time we checked in Butterfly Dreams was still on the design wall, just my pretty kaleidoscope blocks.
Well, since then it has become a completed, finished, gifted quilt! Big thanks are due to my guildmate Deb. Not only is she a super talented crocheter and quilter, she also came to my rescue when my machine started acting up! Thanks to her generosity, this quilt was quilted and bound on a Juki. I told her she's going to spoil me and then she'll be stuck me with always wanting to come over and steal her machines. ; )
The quilt itself is deliciously crinkly and super cuddly which makes it just about perfect to be well loved.
I like how the quilting "spiced up" the back of the quilt, adding some texture and movement. I also finally got to do a stripey binding!
This idea seems to be all over the quilty blogosphere, and I've always adored it.
I am ridiculously pleased with how nicely this came out. I almost always feel like there is *something* that I would change if I were to do a quilt over, but other than a minor mis-step squaring up the completed top...this one went together dreamily. (Well, minus the misbehaving machine.)
