Butterfly lap quilt

I finally got my butterfly lap quilt back from the longarmer today. This coordinates with the colors in my living room and will be draped on the couch for TV watching. It's quilted with an allover large stipple / meander pattern (I've also heard it called maze by panto quilters.) Sorry my picture is so bad. The only place I can hang it up to photograph is the bedroom closet frame, which is narrower than the quilt, so it's droopy at the edges. It looks cock-eyed, but the corners are square, I promise. Isn't the pieced back cool? This is the first one I ever did.

I really, really love it. The colours are the same as my bedroom so I'm just going to pop along and pinch it. You don't mind do you?

Seriously it's beautiful and I hope it gives you many years of pleasure.

Lovely quilt. I like how you used the striped fabric.
