I did go into my sewing room last night before the New England Patriots game. I cut and pieced my first mini block on the Butterfly Garden quilt. I spent the whole game stitching the block and finished it this morning. I am happy with how it turned out. The pinks and greens look great together.The next block I made was one of the focus fabric blocks. Just a simple block with no applique or embroidery. The photo doesn't show the colors well.
Then I bit the bullet and sewed one of the applique hearts. This is only the second time I've made an applique block. I used the freezer paper method. I'm not entirely thrilled with the results, but it's not too bad for only my second try.
After a short nap I decided to tackle another applique block. I've started piecing one of the big daisy blocks. This one has six petals and the center piece. I'm still basting the petals so there's no photo to share yet.
I know some Norwegian bloggers are making Butterfly Garden. How are you coming along in your quilt?
We are expecting a Nor'easter later tonight and all day tomorrow. We could get up to a foot of snow. DH and I will probably work from home tomorrow as the commute is supposed to terrible. Too bad we couldn't sneak a day off, but I don't mind having to work. At least we won't have to worry about the other drivers on the road.
