Butterflies for charity

Second quilt completed in the second month of the year. Ah well.......... sounds too good because it is too good (to be true). This year our quilting group, The Quiltmakers, decided to make a group quilt for charity. We all started out with a 3 inch butterfly block, brought along 2 matching fat quarters to class and started sewing on the 'cheaters block' method, swapping fabrics as our blocks grew in size until we all ended up with 11 inch blocks.

The blocks were then taken home to quilt and during the next class we added sashings and completed the quilt in the 'quilt-as-you-go' method.

It was my job to add the border and decorative butterflies to complete the quilt. Turned out to be a lovely group project.

Completed: 18 February 2008
