7 cosmos butterflies.


This week I've been working with Laura Gunn's Cosmos collection, making more wonky butterflies.  This quilt isn't exactly right for the season (it feels a little more like spring than fall!) but I thought these prints would be perfect for butterfly wings.
This quilt is a bit of a challenge for me, trying to see how far I can stretch the charm squares!  I'd like to make a good lap size quilt, so I'm probably going to add another border around the outside edges.
After I decided to use the painter's canvas as a border, rather than in between the butterflies, I had a lot of space to fill up!  I opted for low volume gray and white prints rather than just using solids.  It adds a lot more interest than the solid gray would have!  It's a little busy with the butterflies, but it's growing on me.
I'm hoping to finish piecing this top in the next few days!  I kind of like making quilts like this without a real plan, just adding to it as I go along.  We'll see where the rest of the week takes it!

p.s.  It has been so gloomy here this week!  Please excuse the lackluster photos.  Mr. Sun did not want to come out today.


  1. What is the name of the text print you're using? I think it would go well with a quilt I'm planning. Thanks!

  2. I love the background choices and the painter's canvas around the edges. Nice! Hope it's less gloomy tomorrow!

  3. It is a bit busy, but I think it's in a good way personally. I really like the subtle gray prints to fill in. Can't wait to see how you finish it!

  4. Great use for these prints! I love the choice of grey background prints.

  5. I love it!!! I knew you'd do something great
