Butterfly Corners

Just to let you know....every quilt I have made in the last six months is not a log cabin quilt. I made this one small quilt to be featured in Gyleen Fitzgerald's new book, coming in 2013, titled The Queen's Court. The book will feature Gyleen's easy, innovative way to sew set-in patches. She calls her method "butterfly corners" which makes it sound like it will be fun to sew set-in corners...and it is. The set in corners are the big yellow squares adjacent to the narrow blue borders. I took the picture in front of my bookcase with all my sewing and quilting books with my iPhone.

Check out Gyleen's website She has a series of really great books that she self-publishes for quilters. My favorite is Quilts: Unfinished Stories with New Endings. I may have to change my favorite after The Queen's Court comes out. We will see.....
