Butterfly Fling/Cheap Trick

A Butterfly Fling Layer Cake some white yardage for the background and a Cheap Trick pattern = this cute quilt. :-)
I finished the center over a week ago and now I'm waiting for Butterfly Fling yardage so I can add the borders.

Maybe I should title this post "ode to the locals" :-). The Butterfly Fling fabric is designed by Me and My Sister Designs for Moda (Barbara and Mary) and the Cheap Trick pattern is by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co (Carrie Nelson). These ladies are all local designers, I've known all of them for almost 10 years and I'm happy to say that I can call them friends. I like to say I knew them before they were famous. LOL I have a long list of stories I could share about all three but my post would go on and on. Let's just say we've laughed, cried and sewn together. :-)

Thank you for your kind messages asking if I'm ok - all is well - thank you for caring.

I do appreciate that you stop by even though my blog has been boring. LOL Don't give up on my silly little blog - come again and come often!

In Friendship!

Wow! What a cute happy colored quilt. I love the block name. Cheap Trick was a favorite band of mine back in my hay days! LOL I will have to check this out. I have several reproduction 30's fabrics that this pattern would do justice to...or even my beloved brights. Cannot wait to see it finished.

Oh I love that! Is Butterfly Fling a new line or an old one? I don't think I've seen it out here anywhere. Your blog has NOT been boring!! It's been nothing but cuteness :) I would never quit reading my Big Sis's blog!!!

That is an awesome quilt! I must find that pattern.

She's a beauty Darlene!

Carol said...

I love your quilt! I was wondering what quilt would be good with that fabric. Hmmm, I may have to get some of this fabric and do this quilt myself, I already have the pattern.

I really enjoy your blog! The quilt is wonderful.. I posted a pic from summer camp that one of the girls was working on and they are awesome in person!

I've only been reading blogs for the past month -- I know, a dinosauar. Your's is one I've got on my "take a peek" list, i.e. NOT BORING!!!
Thanks for the diversion, AND making me feel happy, NOT inferior (No -- I cannot blog, bake, quilt and make my family happy all the live-long day, too much other stuff in my 'ole life).
