The Reveal

With all the talk about scraps, I never did show a picture of what I’m making.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The original pattern is called Summer’s Aflutter by Janet Jones Worley from the August 2001 issue of McCall’s Quilting.  During Bonnie Hunter’s lecture, she suggested taking a quilt from your “someday” list and sewing it as a leaders and enders project.  I thought that was a really good idea.

           

I’ve liked this pattern since the first time I saw it, but didn’t care for the squares with the butterfly appliqués.  The geometric pattern created by the blocks intrigued me, and I wanted to play with changing out the butterfly blocks to see what that did to the look of the quilt.

I also changed some of the borders, which changed the quilt size and shape.  I wanted to keep it small so I could make multiple variations quickly, if that’s what I decide to do. 

Thanks to Bonnie for a great suggestion to get those quilting ideas into fabric.
