Well, it's about that time again. Updates on the Round Trip Quilts! This round I worked on Chelsea of Patch The Giraffe's quilt. I love her color scheme, so simple and modern. She wanted solid colors on a scrappy low volume background.
|How I received the quilt top.|
The top is so bright and playful. The first thing I thought when I saw it was: butterflies! I drafted a pattern and got started paper piecing them. I wanted them to be slightly on the smaller side, to act as a border, and not detract too much from the beautiful central stars.
|Tutorial coming soon!|
I made them at 4" square, and put them on two sides, since the quilt is already growing asymmetrically. I ended up adding a couple of fun scraps to the end as well to make up for a few odd inches.
|The top as it stands now.|
I ended up with one extra butterfly, which I will pass along in the scrap bag. Who knows, maybe someone can incorporate it somehow.
I'm going to miss this quilt. It's so much fun! I especially love the wavy geese on the left side. This is the kind of quilt that is great because it has good movement, and also places for your eyes to rest. Can't wait to see how this one ends up (I think I say that about all the quilts!)
