Electric Quilt 7

I Love My AccuQuilt

Butterflies in the Sun blockIt's finally spring, but it's snowing here today. I thought a sunny block would help keep me in the springtime mood. While designing this block the sun design revealed itself first, but then when I put the block into the example quilt layout I notice there were also fun little butterflies. Perfect for spring!
