Trifle Dish Quilt

I started a new quilt with some sewing friends called Trifle Dish Quilt. The pattern is free on Moda Bake Shop here. I've never done a row quilt before; so far, I'm really enjoying it. For February, we started with the first row called Butterflies and 4 Patches. I shoveled sorted thru my fabric stash and found this great fabric by Alexander Henry. I dusted it off, sent it thru the wash, and claimed it as my focus fabric. Then, I went thru my smaller scraps and found lots of bright colors to go with my focus fabric. The quilt is going to be semi-scrappy because everyone knows I can't do scrappy. It goes against my nature. The background fabric is Moda Grunge but I can't remember which color. I'll have to take it to the fabric store and find out because I'll definitely need more. I finished the whole row but couldn't get a good picture of it. Have you tried taking a picture of something 64-1/2 x 9-1/2? So, following are a couple pictures of the individual blocks.

Next row is called Sponge Roll. I'm starting to get together my accent fabric. I love putting these little scraps to good use for everyone to see. They've been in the scrap bins for too long.

Happy quilting!
