A Butterfly ... I might be crazy!!
When Dallas and I were on holidays, he pointed out this quilt to me:
I was huge and beautful. I didn't think much of it after we saw it. I think it was at the Botanical gardens in Maddison, WI that we visited. During our visit we picked out some plant and actually agreed on a yard design!! Pretty exciting stuff. Now we just need a yard!!
Anyways ... When I got back I looked at the pile of blue material that I bought to make Dallas' mom a quilt with. I was going to make her a Northern Lights Quilt by JayBird Quilts. Sitting here watching golf at St. Andrews in Scotland, I thought why not draw out the butterfly. So I did...
I did have all the little blocks in it like the orginial quilt in the picture above but then I thought, I don't have enough material or creative design ability to do it. So I erased all the blocks and kept the outline. I went in search of a design and found this ...
Thank you Google!!! I figured I could do somthing like like this. So I got out some markers and coloured!!
This is what I've come up with:
As always ... I need more time to get these projects finished or maybe I just need to use my time better!!! Deep thoguht for the day!!
Off to sew!
