My First Quilt Appliqué

Butterflies In Flight

This is my first attempt at Appliqué. My neice has been my teacher. So one week in August when I went to Louisiana to visit this was my lesson. I bought all my supplies and Roxanne helped me put the colors together so they would look nice. I think I did pretty well on my first attempt. 
I found a very easy quilt pattern I wanted to make for my friends new granddaughter.

I just love the simple fluttering butterflies.
I used clear thread to sew the appliqué butterflies on.
I wanted rounded corners. I tool a paper plate and used it for the corner cutting.

I used a rainbow of colors for the butterflies.
I had scraps for the grandmother that she used for her last two grandchildren.
I used a few of the scraps on this granddaughters butterfly quilt.
She cried when she saw the fabric I had used. I knew it would mean a lot to her.

My niece Roxanne did the free hand machine quilting for me.
I just love the look. Its like the butterflies are flying.

I used a ruffle with the binding sewn already on it for my finishing.
 I like to machine the binding on front and hand sew it on the back.
What do you think!
I love the finished quilt.

This is Brynn !
When I saw this pretty quilt I knew it was the one to make for this little princes.

Thanks for stopping by and come back soon.
