a finish


I thought I had signed up for Eileen's (www.eileensattic.blogspot.com) summer stash challenge and was working up to the last minute to finish it. But I never signed up - that's okay - because now I have this beautiful FINISHED quilt that I would have not made otherwise. I've had this butterfly print for a long time and never wanted to cut it up. So I just put my borders on and now I can still admire the fabric as a whole. I quilted around each butterfly, so it has a nice effect. By the way, if you've never visited Eileen's blog - check it out - she has wonderful vintage items, quilts and her pictures are so lovely to look at.

I surely see why you didn't want to cut up this fabric! Love the touch of blue in the border, too.

Yep. I'd be afraid to cut that fabric too!
