butterfly bars


Making more quilts from stash is an ambition of mine. This might in turn be making room for more fabric? Anyway, I have a new quilt to share. It's my butterfly bars, finished at 50" by 60". Soft and warm using quilters dream polyester batting. And it's made from stash.  



I have kept these pretty Sandi Henderson prints bundled up in my stash since making sweet M back in may 2011. 

I like the freedom of the bar layout. This is another quilt that takes inspiration from stack the odds pattern by Denyse Schmidt. The quilt fluttered out of my house yesterday to a loving home.

I am on a finish it up mission. It's all about bindings right now. And I am one of those quilters that loves to sew the binding on the back by hand. In the evening, watching telly and just feel the weight and warmth of the quilt in my lap. So I have a few more finished quilts to show, once I have had a chance to take some pictures. And then there's another couple of quilts in line for a binding.

Happy stitching!

Good for you! I'd like to do more destashing myself. Love the colors and prints in this quilt. So pretty!

Your quilt is beautiful Marit, front and back. Nothing better than sitting at night in front of a good tv show (or dvd if there is nothing on the telly!!) with needle and thread in hand. Very relaxing. xo

Beautiful Marit!! I love the layout and the colours are so pretty. I agree about binding and it's one of my favourite parts :)
