I can’t remember when, but as soon as I saw it, I was enamored with the Flying Farfalle Quilt from Ashley at Film in the Fridge.

A trip to the butterfly house at the Life and Sciences museum in Durham put Blue Morphos on my mind, and when the Triangle Modern Quilt Guild had their most recent blind fat quarter draw, I knew it’d be a great moment to try out this pattern.

And now I have a quilt with lots of blue butterflies!

What’s that you say?  Where are the goldfish?  Oh, they’re right here!

And here…

Farfalle-Goldfish

It was my first attempt trying to get my little one to pose with a quilt.  We’ll be working more on this later…

Farfalle-back

The back has the numbers in words print from Ikea on it.

The small lap quilt is 45″x55.” I started it sometime in September, and I finished it one week before our guild meeting in October. The print in the butterflies is Kaffe Fasset, and the solids – in the butterflies and the binding – are a random mix of blue scraps. The goldfish… well… they’re from Pepperidge Farm.

I’m linking to the Blogger’s Quilt Festival! It’s my first time entering a quilt in any sort of event. I wasn’t sure whether to enter in the two-color quilt, throw quilt, scrappy quilt, or photography categories, but since today was my first day using a tripod, I’m going to stick with that flavor and just put my quilt on the photography page.  I’m pretty sure it won’t matter ;) I’m just happy to participate!
