Flutter is an 84″ square flimsy, finished? undecided.  A border is in order, perhaps with flying geese fluttering around.

Weekend before last I tackled my Island Batik scrap basket and used the AccuQuilt 2″ finished die to cut everything large enough to fit on it. The rainbow colored scraps are from the Colorpop Collection.the blue and orange are from the Floralicious Collection both designed by Kathy Engle.  You can purchase precuts of Floralicious now but yardage wont be available until Sept/Oct, but good luck finding a shop that isn’t sold out.

After the precuts hit the shops I purchased 4 fq bundles from MSQ. When I went back a week later to purchase more they were sold out, not sure about now as they could have restocked.

Now I am off to start on my IB September Challenge and hopefully I’ll have a clear plan for a border when it’s done.

September Challenge

This year byAnnie joined Island Batik as an industry partner and supplied all ambassadors with a kit. Everything we need to complete the challenge including the designated fabric were packaged in box 2.  I am really excited about this one.


  1. Butterflies are such lovely creatures and so is your quilt. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.

    1. Thank you Emily. I’m really excited to start quilt it but I have the Tree of Life on the frame and I have 3 other projects that need completed before it happens.

  2. What lovely abstract, pixelated butterflies! How will you quilt this one? I think I would quilt flowers for the butterflies, like they’re fluttering around in a garden. 🙂

    1. Funny you should say that. I’m currently quilting the Tree of Life and decided to get some practice making a spiral with feathers to look like a flower, then vines connecting everything. By the time I get to the Flutter I should have the movement down.

  3. Hi Denise! The quilt top must be meant-to-be since it came together so quickly. I’ve never bought anything from Annie’s but I am looking forward to seeing what you have to share. Thanks for linking up today. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Thank you Roseanne. It will be a bit before I can share the Annie project since it is for a blog hop. The butterflies did come together so quickly, not really. I’m an insomniac and climbed out of bed a couple night and worked on it until 1-230am. My secret is out to finishing everything so quickly.

      1. HAHA! I’m sorry you haven’t been able to sleep. That is the pits. I’m doing it too, but I know it’s from stress at being back at work. {{Hugs}}

  4. I have made a few Annie projects, the instructions are great, and easy to follow. I especially like that she designs a bag that looks professionally made. It’s the little touches that make it look good, not to mention functional.

    Butterflies look terrific too!

    1. So far so good, got all my fabric cut yesterday. I really should make more with patterns or at least read patterns but I’m more of a visual person.
