Butterfly Oasis and NTT

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, friends!  My parents came into town last weekend for a visit, and I finished my aunt's quilt, so that I could send it to Louisiana with them.  My aunt actually lives in Texas, but in a few weeks, my grandmother is taking a trip there, and the quilt will be passed off to its final destination.  We relay things like this as often as we can, and it's always fun when it works out that we don't have to ship things.  That meant that I had to finish this one up pretty quickly before my parents arrived, but it all worked out!

From a little bit of a distance, the quilt looks a bit busy, but because the colors are so calming, it still works. There are so many pretty prints in this one, and you can really see them so much better up close.

I used up all of the leftovers on the back, and decided on a clover green binding to finish it off.

Blues and greens are so soothing, and I love how this quilt turned out.  I decided to use the butterfly print as inspiration, and name it Butterfly Oasis.  I don't usually choose prints with animals in them, but I was drawn to this one!

Shall we get to last week's features?  Teresa at a Quilt and a Prayer shared this scrappy rainbow masterpiece.  So fun!

Tanya Quilts in CO shared Christmas patchwork Swoon quilt, along with a Swoon mini.  The patchwork variation is so unique, and I love that soft green background.

and this Flaming Star quilt by Monkey Needle is amazing!  LOVE!!

Y'all really rocked it out last week!  Time to show me what you're working on this week.  Let's link up, friends!
