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!!!
I just finished my Nevada Butterfly for our Butterfly Batik Swap. I love the colors on this one. It may not resemble a Nevada butterfly….I created it out of my imagination. I am representing the state of Nevada where I used to live when I was 5 years old.
I love cutting my fabric scraps up in 2″, 2.5″ 3″ and 5″ squares for future projects. I got the idea when I participated in the 2000 challenge swap. I have a whole tub of these squares from the swap but still no quilt made from them. Although I have made a watercolor wall hanging from my 2″ squares. I love working with them creating a picture.
