Dilly Dallying Around...

Dilly Dallying Around
Dilly Dallying Around is now done!  This was a fun little quilt to make and is one of a series using the fabric Dilly Dally by Me and My Sister Designs.  I've already finished a smaller version and have another one still to quilt.

Closeup of quilting
I used a Butterfly pantograph on this one from the book Quilting Dot to Dot by Cheryl Barnes.  (I love this book!)

I also used a Butterfly motif from the same book to make a label for the back...

Until later...

Then Jesus said to his disciples, 'If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me.' 
 Matthew 16:24 (NLT)


  1. Dee, your quilt is so pretty and I like the fabrics surrounded with the white border. This quilt will let someone know that they are special. What a blessing to a child who needs to hear that message! You picked a pantograph that works well with both sides of the quilt too. Nice work.
