What's Inside the February 2021 Quilty Box? Butterfly Window!

I can't begin to tell you how exciting it is when you receive a Quilty Box in the mail.  The anticipation of opening the box at this point is almost overwhelming!  Emotions run high.  What could be inside?  It's a great surprise, and I've always loved surprises.

Everything inside the box is neatly wrapped inside some crisp, white tissue paper.  It makes it feel even more like you are opening a gift.

This month's fabric collection is Spring Shimmer by Jennifer Sampou.  Jennifer has created some beautiful fabric collections over the years.  I'm a fan.

She hit it out of the park with these fabrics.  You get beautiful colors, the butterfiles, gold, and some gorgeous woven textures.  Sigh....it's dreamy.

This month's Bundles of Inspiration magazine has an interview with Jennifer Sampou, a pattern to make her Butterfly Window quilt, and more.

This handy pair of snips was also included.  I can always use another pair of these.  They tend to migrate around the house wherever I'm sewing.

The Sewing Edge ~ These are reusable strips to put on your machine bed to adjust your seam allowance.

Aurifil thread ~ my favorite!  I didn't have this gorgeous honey color and I'm happy to add it to my thread collection.

I was so in love with the Spring Shimmer fabrics that I started on the Butterfly Window quilt the same day I received my box.

It's a pretty easy pattern.  Mostly you cut out squares in a few different sizes.

Look at this sweet fabric!  It's like a honeycomb.  I adore it.

Cutting, cutting, cutting...

And then to the stitching part.  Here's some of my squares laid out to make half square triangles.  I'm not following the color combinations exactly.  I mixed it up a bit.  The pattern is very specific and tells you which fabrics to match up for the half square triangles.  I decided to create two piles of lights and darks and let randomness out to play.  I sewed all the HST's together and had to pack it up for some deadline sewing projects.  I hope I get to finish this top soon.
