Bluebonnets and Butterflies

This is the second grandchild quilt brought to me by a new quilter. This time around, the quilt is for a little girl – Makenna. Bluebonnets and Butterflies is a perfect little girl quilt. In fact, this not-so-little girl would love it too!

While a new quilter, Makenna’s grandmother is quite adept at showcasing fabrics. A good choice was made to use larger blocks for the larger print fabrics.

As you can see from this close up image, the quilting ties in well.

The fabrics were chosen with care, and there is an embroidered section on top of the quilt. This holds a special message

Not everyone provides solid color backing, and this can work well or not so much. In this case, the quilt is absolutely reversible.
