Sherry’s Butterfly Garden quilt~!

Sherry’s Butterfly Garden quilt~!

I love love this quilt!!  The navy solid background fabric makes all those vibrant colors pop.  This pattern is called Butterfly Garden by Lori Holt and is in her Quilty Fun book.

I love the variety of fabrics, it’s quilts like these that are perfect scrap bin quilts.

Some close ups of the butterflies and the quilting.  I chose to quilt my new “Foil©️” design on this quilt, and I love how it turned out.  It’s available in several different digital formats on my website: https://www.quiltingit.com/shop/foil  When I saw this quilt for the first time, I knew this is what I wanted to quilt on it.  I think it fits well with the modern butterflies and flowers.

My Foil©️ design, pictured below.

I used a white 30 Tex A&E Perma Core thread and my favorite Winline 8020 cotton/poly blend batting.  When it comes to using different colored threads on contrasting fabrics...especially when doing edge to edge quilting...I prefer lighter/neutral thread on darker fabrics, than darker thread on lighter fabrics.  I think the lighter thread blends in pretty well, and doesn’t stand out or take away from the quilt pattern and fabrics used.  Custom quilting is completely different.  Matching thread colors to quilts is key.

Here is Foil©️ with the flowers.  Love these sweet flowers!!
