Butterfly quilt

This past week I have been working on a new quilt for our Great-niece Savannah. Savannah lives way over in Missouri with her Mommy, 2 sisters, and 1 brother. I didn't realize I was a bad Auntie until I found out that all of Savannah's siblings have received a blanket from me except her :( Well, sometime this month or next month she will be holding her very own quilt!
I have appliqued all 12 blocks needed for the top. Here is just a small sampling. I did a satin stitch around 6 of the butterflies and the other 6 have a blanket stitch.

I have a very pretty blue that will become the borders. I just hope I bought enough.

The pattern can be found at Sindy's site. She has so many great patterns. I think most of my gift wuilts this year will be from her site.

This is beautiful! I want to make one now and I don't quilt! Thanks for sharing the link though. I just might get the quilting bug myself ;D
