Butterfly Finish

 Not too long ago, I shared I had helped myself to some intriguing scraps I found in some bins at a friend's house.  They were bright and seemingly already cut to size to make some log cabin blocks.




Using all the scraps, I was able to finish up a total of nine blocks like the one above.  
Just enough for a baby quilt.




I dug around in my stash and found this low volume print for a background.  I wanted about a 40" square quilt so after a bit of math, I decided on a 3.5" sashing around all the blocks.




I did have to fudge a bit on a few measurements.  It is not real noticeable but not all the blocks are the same size.  Because I used the strips and centers as they were cut, a couple of my blocks were under sized.  I think I hid it well :)




Isn't it cute?
I kind of got lucky that I had just the right color placement on the blocks to lay them out in the way I did.  It looks like I knew what I was doing all along!






I even used up some scraps on the back.  Both of these prints were leftovers from some quilt backings used long ago.

I always love working on these little projects that seem to just jump from the scrap bins into my hands.  I just sit at my machine and sew the bits together - it seems like the fabrics already know what they want to be.

Happy Friday Everyone!
