Butterflies

I have them all around me, 85 to exact and cut out by hand. Ouch my fingers hurt and I still have indents from the scissors to prove it.

An old friend of mine asked if I would make baby quilts for his new grandchildren on the way. For days I played around with designs but that is just going to take more time than I have.

Google and I made fast friends except he kept showing me butterflies. There’s only one sure and quick way to make butterflies and that’s appliqué. So I downloaded templates from Favequilts and away I went.

You might remember my fabric pull from yesterday but if not here’s a photo.

 

Today I began playing with placement. I really love the sample quilt on Favequilts but for me the corners were too bare. I’ll decide what to with the corners later.

I thought I had 3 pretty balanced stacks of colors. When I stepped back to judge what I had going there were just too many colors for one top. Back to sorting butterflies.

Here is where I left it this evening.

Perhaps the pinks in the corners on this one?

With all this indecision I’m making this my One Monthly Goal for January. To complete all  tops.
