Butterfly Garden

I picked up this butterfly panel more than a year ago. I'm not sure why I wanted it. I mean, it's pretty. I decided it was time to pull my fabrics together to make it into a quilt. I grabbed coordinating blues, oranges, greens, and yellow. 
I played around with blocks in Electric Quilt until I had a couple blocks I wanted to make. I grabbed my Accuquilt Go! and 8 Inch Qube and got cutting. 
As usual, it was quick work. 
I assembled the pinwheel blocks first. 
Then the stars. 
This quilt uses the panel as the centerpiece. Then I added borders. 
Then rows of blocks and another border. 
I wanted the quilt to be longer than it is wide, so I added wider top and bottom borders. First with this fun blue floral. 
Then with this fun red floral. It was a quick project that I finished in a weekend. Now I just need backing. 

Tools and supplies (affiliate links):

Accuquilt Go! - This is the basic kit that I started with. The cutter, one die, and mat.
Accuquilt Ready. Set. Go! - New to Accuquilt and ready to jump into the Accuquilt Go! with both feet? This is the set for you. It includes the 8 Inch Qube and a strip cutter. 
8 Inch Qube - Already have an Accuquilt Go! and just want to add to your collection of dies?
