I have prepared a photo-tutorial with the pictures I took while making this Butterfly Garden mini quilt. You can find it here.

The Butterfly Garden fabrics can be purchased in my Spoonflower Shop.
These designs can be printed on a wide range of fabrics: cotton, silk, satin, crêpe de Chine, lycra, knit, Jersey, etc.
This mini quilt was made with Kona Cotton Ultra, unto which colors appear slightly faded.

You can see more pictures of this collection on My Fabric Designs page.

Butterfly Mini Mini Quilt – Made with Crafted Appliqué

During the weeks of the Make Modern Magazine mini mini quilt challenge (#miniminiquilt on Instagram), I made this little round quilt. I used the same butterfly pattern I created for the Butterflies in the Garden quilt I made for my niece. On a side note, my post about the Butterflies in the Garden quilt is the first I published, on October 23, 2013. 🙂

While perusing my old patterns to decide which ones I would use to test the Crafted Appliqué – New Possibilities method, I found these butterfly wings ready to be used: prepared with fusible interfacing and edges turned (ironed). I had prepared these wings when I wrote my tutorial on Preparing Appliqués with Fusible Interfacing (free pdf in French and in English here). I wondered how interfacing would fare with Lara’s method. In truth? Wonderfully.

Being small, this project was done quite rapidly.

The body of the butterfly also received the Crafted Appliqué treatment. Everything was stitched with my sewing machine, except the binding that was stitched by hand on the back.

I find that this round mini mini quilt would make a gorgeous cover for a round pouch. What do you think?
