She chose this pattern from a selection I made for her, and oh how I have grown to hate these butterflies
She wanted them making in a colour of provencal lavendar fields, which would not be my first choice of colours to be honest. It seems such an old fashioned colour scheme - it makes me think of grannies, lavendar water, and zip-up slippers. But I have tried my best to keep it modern and fresh looking, whilst staying true to the colours
This was a project that always found it's way to the bottom of the pile. but finally after about 6 months, I could breath a sigh of relief as I had the two tops pieced, together with the small table mat that she asked for.
As these are going to spend their time under peoples bottoms, there are going to need to be pretty sturdy and stable, so I thought a simple stipple would be the best idea.
To keep the costs down, I used an old quilt cover for the backing. I thought it went perfectly, but it was a bit of a headache to quilt, as it didn't glide very well over the table of my sewing machine. I guess this is because it's been washed several times, and the fabric has lost it shininess.
It's getting very last minute, but these two quilts will be my second and third finish for the Q1 FAL hosted by Adrianne at On the Windy Side, but as I can oly claim one per post, I'm going to have to do a little jiggery pokery!. I have also got the table mat to show and claim, so that will have to be in a separate post.
