This pattern I saw called “Butterfly Town”. I liked that it was a scrap quilt, but it was a paper-pieced quilt. I haven’t taken the time yet to learn how to paper piece. What to do? I made my own pieced version. It wasn’t the most efficient use of fabric, but it turned out pretty. I had never done the piano-keys border before either, and I loved how it turned out! I used the leftover scraps from the butterfly material to make the border. The scalloped edge was done using a scalloped edge tool from Missouri Star Quilt Company. And it was the first time I had ever tried a mitered corner. The quilting was done free-hand. I borrowed a friend’s long neck high-speed Juki, which was wonderful! I gotta get me one of those! I think it had a 9″ neck.
It wasn’t perfect, but Katie likes it! And I do too.
