I have been steadily working away on my Butterfly Quilt (mentioned here and here) using lots of different colourful scraps. My vision for the quilt has shrunk from a single bed size down to a lap quilt (after 144 butterflies I would like to finish up) This is the first real scrap quilt I have made and I am finding it rather busy, albeit colourful. My scrap container is certainly lighter!
I could really use some input on how to finish it off. I am deliberating whether a solid border would work best (perhaps white or black) to help tone it down a bit. Alternatively, perhaps a black and grey polka dot, black and white rings, or black heath print would work well (see images below).
For the backing, I am planning using a text print to co-ordinate with the centre of all the butterflies. Hometown is one of my current favourites.
I have one more day of work left before a two week break over the school holidays. Hope to get this quilt nearly completed – I am already dreaming of the next quilt:)
