You’ve been watching my progress. You just didn’t know it! This is the newly named “Butterfly Kisses” pattern that I’m working up. SOON it will be available as a free PDF tutorial! This was the first version with extra colors. I honestly like it better than the 3 color version, but the tutorial already took FOREVER!!!
I actually sat down long enough to handquilt this. I NEVER do anything by hand. I just don’t have the time. But I forced myself. And I LOVED it!! I started with echoing everything in white. but you KNOW I had to add my butterfly. Long story, but I screwed up and messed up my fabric!! The light blue covered a very poor marking decision on one of the squares. And then, I LOVED IT!!! So I added some orange peel-ish quilting too.
I’m really happy with the way this turned out. But even BETTER—My PARTNER seems to love it!! She is a quilter named Kelly. Her life seems very similar to mine (poor lady!! LOL) Go check out her work! Her blog is A Plain Path.
Strangely enough, I had this all the way done, and had started on the quilting when I finally checked out her blog. And found where she used the SAME fabric to make a hexagon project!! Was that kismet, or WHAT? I hope this gives you as much joy, Kelly, as I had while making it!!
Now, the OTHER project!!! I used a pattern/tutorial from Moda to make a Baby Quilt!
Isn’t it beautiful?? Yes, you Connecting Threads fans–this is yet another one of their fabric collections. This one is quite old, but I never had a good reason to use it. The back is cute, but simple.
Those specs are the pins, before the flaps were sewn down. Now—-WHO can I give this to?? SOMEONE needs to have a baby girl! LOL
I’m in the middle of about 4 other projects right now, plus the craft fair NEXT WEEKEND!! AAAKKKK Wish me luck. Because I’m about to lose my MIND!!
peace and pieces,
