BUTTERFLY DREAMS

I REMOVED THE BATIK STRIPS, THINKING THEY WERE TOO GEOMETRIC AND
A BIT ON THE HARSH SIDE :
                                                              See ...      ↡

                                                                Not my style at all....
Soooo....
Instead I put that peach flowery print around and then FOUND more of this surrounding print
in my greens pile...I had forgotten that I had MORE--what a nice surprise....;))):
                                                        ↡                                   ↡

And then,
I added that Dark green flowered print (above on the bottom)
                                     YES!!!      that's more like it.....                                                 
                             
 --I will continue the rounds with those two for a bit in courthouse steps style...
                                       (So much for taking a break from sewing, huh?)
and this is.........
My story (and I'm sticking to it!!) :

I was trying to nap, as I hardly slept last night...and this butterfly vision kept swirling around in my brain--I just knew the 1st look wasn't what I truly wanted...just not right...too stark...pretty batik
and nice colors but just not ME!! And I want to make it pretty...;))))))
So,
Now: My lovely butterfly is surrounded by a garden...🌷🌹
How lovely is that thought....especially in this really cold weather  brrrrr....
Hugs, 
Julierose La blageuse (and....I dream of quilts-euse)

  1. That is some pretty garden fabric for your butterfly to flit around in.

  2. Good idea!
    I'll be back to see more. We have stormy rain today. I went for a walk in it, thrilling.

  5. I really like the idea of a butterfly block amid lots of floral fabs.
