“Flutter” Butterfly Quilt in Grey
It’s been a real week already – and it’s only Tuesday. (Yikes.) I’m feeling thankful I get to focus on my favorite of all the new Lovestruck quilts today. (It’s honestly magical they way pretty fabric and quilts can lift your spirit, right?) So this is yet another “Flutter” butterfly quilt – but with a nice dark background to make those cheery colors pop.
Whenever I’m piecing a quilt with a good amount of open space, I LOVE sending it off to Natalia Bonner for custom quilting. This was one of those occasions – take a peek! She created a gorgeous diamond pattern around the butterflies.
The “Flutter” butterfly quilt pattern is fat eight friendly. (Each fat eighth yelds a set of top and bottom wings that you can mix and match around.) I consider the skill level “confident beginner,” as we use a beginner easy-corner triangle technique to add the angles.
Even though Lovestruck fabric is still a ways away from arriving (November), the patterns are available in the shop now in PDF or printed booklet formats. I won’t be carrying the fabric/kits, so it’s recommended you reach out to your favorite local or online shop to make the request now (while they can order it). Hope that helps!
