Butterfly Quilt Finished

The last of the binding was stitched down yesterday on the Butterfly quilt.  Presley practiced her counting of the binder clips while I was sewing.  Well actually I counted to three over and over and she would touch different clips each time.  She has to start somewhere, doesn’t she?

I find it interesting to see how much a quilt top shrinks due to the quilting – this one lost 1 1/2″ on both width and length.  The finished size is 50 1/2″ x 67″ and the quilt top was 52″ x 68 3/4″.

The Butterfly quilt is one of the first tops that was posted when I started my blog in 2012.  It feels great to have this top become a completed quilt.

Yesterday I also hand stitched the binding on the Seahorse in Seaweed quilt with only the sleeve left to do.  Hopefully it will be done tomorrow.
