my Cottoneer Metamorphosis quilt!

 I'm calling this quilt my "Cottoneer" Metamorphosis quilt because, well.... these fabrics are from Cottoneer! Creative....I know. ;)

I'm sure you're already familiar with Cottoneer...but in case you haven't heard...Cottoneer is the cutest little online fabric shop that has some of my favorite fabrics...ever. Andrea is the owner, and she curates her fabric selections so tastefully and perfectly, and I'm a HUGE fan of everything that she does! One day, I was scrolling through Instagram and I came across the sweetest, most gorgeous bundle from Cottoneer and I knew that I had to have it!

Okay, so I did some digging to try to find where most of these fabrics are from. From left to right they are:

  • Kona Spruce
  • Starry in Dark by Dylan M. for Windham Fabrics
  • Friends in Tiffany by Dylan M. for Windham Fabrics
  • I'm not sure about this one?
  • Kona....I think it's Light Parfait?
  • Friends in Peach by Dylan M. for Windham Fabrics
  • This is a Peppered Cotton, I'll have to look up the color.
  • Add it Up in Rust by Ruby Star Society for Moda
  • Not sure about this one.
  • Beanstalk in Yellow by Dylan M. for Windham Fabrics
  • Add it up in Cactus by Ruby Star Society for Moda
  • Friends in Gold by Dylan M. for Windham Fabrics
  • Coziness in Marshmallow by Art Gallery Fabrics
  • Petal Steps in Multi by Dylan M. for Windham Fabrics

If you're ever stumped on a color palette or feeling unsure/uninspired by what fabrics you should choose for your next quilt...I encourage you to check out her bundles and see what she has to offer! Sometimes it's easier to just let other people make the decision for you. :)

I quickly decided to turn these pretty fabrics into butterflies. Metamorphosis is the PERFECT pattern for showing off prints. Each wing is one continuous cut, so you don't have to worry about seams in the middle of your favorite fabric. 

.

Once you get everything cut, this pattern comes together SO quickly. Not to mention it's a nice, mindless sew...which you can just sit at your machine and chain piece all day. It's SUCH a chill and relaxing make.

Oh, and if you didn't catch my video tutorial for this block, be sure to check it out. Who knew half circles could be so easy?

I sent this off to Walker Quilt Co. for the quilting. She used a pantograph called 60s Mod Butterfly...is it not perfect??

Since a lot of these fabrics were from Dylan M.'s (@bydylanm) new Playground collection for Windham fabrics, I decided to use a print from that collection for the backing. It's called "In the Flowers - Multi".  I generally like to use larger scale prints for my backings, and this one was perfect!!

I used up scraps from the fat quarters for my binding. Scrappy bindings are so satisfying to make....you don't need any additional yardage and you get a nice mix of a few different fabrics, all in one. It's great!

We weren't able to go to our typical photography spot for this pattern release due to social distancing and quarantine....so we had a little photo shoot in our living room!
