My picture today is the Lulu Roses Butterfly Quilt … excuse my picture!
It’s raining for two days straight and I decided to share a less than perfect picture …. I can’t wait any longer 🙂
This quilt measures 57 x 72.
It was supposed to be larger ….but I messed up! If you’ll remember my blocks started out as 8-1/2 squares …but I cut them without paying attention the direction of the grain and that resulted in some of my blocks stretching (can you tell this part of quilting continues to confuse me). To correct the mistake I squared up my blocks and they measure 7 inches.

One note about cutting the butterflies … when I’m cutting butterflies, flowers, squares, circles .. etc. I don’t pay attention to the grain because I’m doing a raw edge applique. I’ve made a ton of them and they all turn out beautiful!!!

When the sun comes out and Brooke has time …. we will take more pictures and post them. (The quilt is white …but with the cloudy skies is looks cream).
