As I am working on my Butterflies for our Swap…a friend brought me a great multi-color batik from Lancaster PA. It was not enough fabric for a set of my Butterflies but I had a lot of fun fussy cutting out butterfly wings which made some beautiful butterflies. This is all one piece of fabric and I used the button hole stitch to outline the wings depending on the colors.
Hope everyone has a happy 4th of July!! It was time to bring out my July very large table runner for my coffee table and I thought I would share a photo of it with everyone. These blocks are from a swap by our very first Nifty Fifty group of quilters. Our quilters wanted to keep in touch after we finished swapping out our 50 state quilt blocks so I organized 12 more mini swaps…. one for each month with 6 inch quilt blocks. This is our July one which was red, white and blue with a flag and star theme. Enjoy your holiday!!!
