MY FRIDAY FLIGHT OF FANCY
I finally figured out how to scale down this pattern that I have been salivating over for THREE
years or so...BUTTERFLY blocks...
I know ...this from the gal who claims she only does one thing at a time;
well, never say never, I guess.
Ever get that intense feeling that you HAVE to do it
before you forget; and then try to sleep
and have it reeling in a loop through your brain???
Over and over and, well you get the idea...
I was up at 2 a.m. cutting and cutting and stash surfing...
not such a great idea, as I had to RE-CUT all the pieces this morning--
talk about wonki-fi-cated...;000
there were 3 really strange and rectangular baby butterflies
that emerged ;000
they now reside in my parts drawer..
not being a math whiz, it took me a while to figure out how
to re-size them in order to use my 5" charms...along with scraps...
these will go into a "parts" quilt that I am planning--
and the list grows ever long....
Anyway, so this is my 4th ongoing project in process right now....
The wings are a piece of Kaffee fabric that had gotten pushed behind my blue stack; this one has the black body [a leftover bit of Halloween fabric--
don't you love when that happens?]
the pink/yellow-ey skyscape as my background.
Here is the 2nd version with the striped body...
They will FLUTTER in a square formation with the skyscape in the middle...each butterfly is 5" unfinished...a really fun project.
I am in the process of stash diving to find other "wing-ey" fabrics ...
Julierose, La Blageuse...(aerial flight-euse-ing)lol
