I just recently learned that a flight (flock, group) of butterflies is called a kaleidoscope. How fun is that?
The final cuts made from the strip sets are three units of 2.5 inches. These get mixed up and reassembled into 9-patches. I had enough to include 16 on a quilt (instead of the 12 shown in the pattern). These are set on point with the spacing blocks from my stash of the colorful butterfly fabric.
I gave it a double border to quiet it down a bit and then quilted the orange dot border with sketchy butterflies.
The only color in the butterfly fabrics that was not in the 9-patch fabrics was bright green so I pulled that color from my stash for the backing. The quilting was all done in black so it would stand out on the backing.
This quilt finished up at 43 inches square. It as well as the three other quilts will all go to the hospital Passages program.
