Butterfly Garden

In October 2008 I bought a f/q pack of Ava Rose fabrics to make Butterfly Garden, designed by Leanne Beasley.  In April 2009 I started making the blocks.  Last night the final stitch was sewn.

"Butterfly Garden" -  62" x 62"

Backing
I am so happy that this quilt is finished - it's taken a very long time to make.  Leanne had a hand in choosing the colour of the fabric for the butterflies and hearts when I had a chat to her in Adelaide at the time I was just starting to make the blocks.  I'm still not 100% convinced that needleturn and I are friends.

Might get back to "Gingham Girls - My Favourite Things" one day soon and when that's finished I'll think about starting "Down in the Garden".  Too many beautiful quilt choices from our talented Australian designers.

What an achievement! How fantastic does BG look!
With the needleturn, I would suggest lessons from a variety of people who use slightly different methods, try them all and see what works best for you. Over the past couple of years there have been a number of great DVDs on needleturn with Australia Quilters Companion magazine. On the other hand there are many different methods of applique and if needleturn isn't your favourite I don't think it matters; do what works for you.
