The title of today's entry is actually the name I gave this quilt! I started designing with some very bright prints and selected 4 aqua, 4 orange, 4 green, 4 pink and 1 yellow. I made 6-inch blocks with 4 inches of color bordered by 1 inch of white on each side. Then I laid them out in a twist and turn format to make it look woven.
When I went looking for an appropriate backing I found an awesome butterfly print with sketched black lines:
This inspired me to doodle butterflies as the quilting, which I did inside each color block, doubling the stitching of each one and carrying over to the next block with a single line. This is all stitched in columns with black thread.
Here is a close-up of the quilting:
I bound this lap quilt with some of the green stripe.
Here's a look at the finished product:
A bit of Spring in the middle of Autumn!
