I am learning that I really enjoy piecing quilts. Well, perhaps I should explain that more...since all quilts require piecing. I have discovered that I really enjoy (once I get the hang of it), the smaller pieced quilts such as this cute Dresden Plate butterfly quilt.
For some reason or other, the camera took reddish pics of this, so I will have to do it over again when it is finished because this quilt back ground is actually purple.
The pieces of the butterfly wings are made up of one of my granddaughters dresses that I have made in the past and I just love polka dots.
Once it is all pieced, I will use a gelled fabric paint for the antennea on the butterflies and it will be adorable.
I am also using a pieced backing in larger squares so this quilt will be reversible.
I had a difficult time understanding the concept of how these worked, but once I figured it out...well, watch here for a short tutorial on it just in case you have having the same problem I was.
BTW, if anyone is interested in this pattern, I have the pattern and template up for grabs! Be the first one to leave a comment telling me you want it and an Email address or mailing address and I will drop it in the mail to you.
With so many yummy patterns out there to work on, I usually do not repeat the same quilt or quilt pattern twice~!
