Last of Sultry, Modern Quilt Finished

A long while ago, I made tons of whirly gig blocks from some Sultry charm packs.  I made two baby quilts and a twin sized quilt with them all.  This was the last of the blocks.  The ones that look all white are not really, they are a white tonal and can be seen in person, just not well in pics.  I had a yard left for backing and a little for some borders.  This quilt is about 36x44.  I do still have some sultry scraps, but all blocks are used.  This quilt is off to my newest niece.  I would be shocked if my brother reads this blog, so I am not worried about the surprise being ruined, and really quilts are always better in person, so just seeing a pic is like having a fun preview!

This is my finish for the Broadbents Modern Quilt group.  I have conflicts this Saturday and am sad to be missing our meeting.  This is a nice sized lap quilt.  I have gotten a lot of great feedback and want to do another similar to this one.  It's great for scraps.
I quilted big butterflies in the meandering of this quilt.  I really love how it all turned out.

Both of the quilts are great! I love the grey with bright colors. I just finished up a coin quilt with grey.
