A Butterfly quilt

This is for a friend of mine who had a baby girl. She said she wanted to decorate the baby's room in butterflies. It's made from a layer cake. I made half square triangles and then put in 2 1/2 inch strips so it wasn't square. I like my baby quilts to be about 40 X 50. It's really fast and easy using a layer cake to make half square triangles, and they are large so you don't have to make so many small blocks. Good way to make a quick baby quilt. I have a layer cake of Pure that I'm thinking about doing the same way. I love the brown & blue colors in that line.
