Blogger’s Quilt Festival – Madame Butterfly

Blogger’s Quilt Festival – Madame Butterfly

It is time for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival again hosted by Amy Ellis from Amy’s Creative Side.  This is a chance for the quilters in the blogging community to participate in a virtual quilt show! What a concept!

My first entry this time around is Madame Butterfly!

Following my term as President of the Coastal Quilters Guild of Santa Barbara and Goleta, I was presented with a gift of 103 wonky log cabin blocks made in 3 sizes with solid fabrics.  The blocks came in 9″, 6″ and 3″ and most were signed by the members.

    

It was a bit of a challenge to come up with a plan for these blocks.  Here are some ideas that got tossed….

    

Somewhere along the line I remembered seeing the Tula Pink Butterfly Quilt and I thought I might be able to come up with a similar design and Madame Butterfly was born.  She started out taller and skinnier…..

And then as the planning began in earnest, she turned into this.  I had to make quite a few more 3 ” blocks in order to get the shape of the butterfly that I wanted. This is the top completed hanging on my fence.

 

I had quite a few blocks left from my guild members so rather than making a quilt “back”, I made another front for a two sided quilt.  I wanted to continue the butterfly theme so I paper pieced a couple of butterflies to anchor this side. I had a lovely newsprint fabric that worked well with the butterflies and wonky log cabins.

The quilting was a big challenge on this quilt as the finished size is 100″ by 80″.  I started by quilting the paper pieced butterflies on the second side. Then I flipped it over and quilted the butterfly wings from the first side.  You can see the butterfly in the quilting in the wing.

            

    

Once the butterfly was quilted, it was time for the straight lines in the background.  Because I needed the lines to work away from the butterfly, it meant rolling the entire quilt into the throat of my Janome 6600 to complete the quilting.  It was quite a challenge but well worth it.

         

         

  The second side of the quilt uses the rest of the guild members blocks along with the  paper pieced butterflies in large frames. The local quilt show hung this quilt as a two sided exhibit so all the guild members could try to locate their blocks. You can see the outline of the large butterfly because the light is behind the quilt as it hung in our local quilt show.

Madame Butterfly was awarded Viewer’s Choice at our Harvest of Colors Biennial Quilt Show and I was thrilled to come up with a design that showed off the handiwork of all of the block contributors. And my granddaughters like it too!

Thanks for checking in.  I hope you are enjoying all of the quilts that are showcased in the Blogger’s Quilt Festival.  I am entering this quilt in Original Design.
