On the homestretch

This has definitely been my stretch project for 2022. Pattern: Metamorphosis from Lo & Behold Stitchery. Circles aren’t difficult, but do require special handling – especially if you are using “unequal” fabrics. The butterfly wings are made from a mix of polyester, rayon and cotton Hawaiian shirts. Tip: stabilize rayon and polyester pieces with a lightweight fusible interfacing before cutting. The fabrics will be much easier to handle.

Pillow covers are double sided, quilted and have a zipper closure at the bottom. Each of the pillow sides has a slightly different quilting design. I decided to go with the design on pillow #1 as the overall quilting design for the throw. The back will be pieced incorporating six 10-1/2″ squares from leftover shirt materials.
