Butterfly Migration

I finished the quilt top that I started in a workshop with Gyleen Fitzgerald earlier this month. I am very pleased with the way it turned out. The "butterfly" seams, Gyleen's way of conquering the dreaded Y seam, worked out well, though at times, I will admit, I got lost in the jungle of seams where six come together. In the end I sorted it out and got everything to match up for the most part.

In a crazed period of cleaning, I found the cut off pieces from my Cultural Fusion quilt. I sewed them up into wonky four patches and then set them into this little strippy  quilt.


  1. your butterfly quilt looks very complicated to me, could not work out how you did the blocks. Love the wonky 4 patch, I am using all my scraps at the moment on a quilt with crazymums blog

  2. They both turned out really well! Isn't it great when you can make a nice little quilt with mainly leftovers? I love the orange background! Do you see more of Gyleen's Y seams in your future?
