I talked Juliet from The Tartan Kiwi into letting me test one of her paper pieced patterns... can you guess what it is?
I also have a very good excuse for starting another small new project. When hubby (who makes me breakfast in bed every single day) asks if I can make an acquaintance a baby quilt... well, of course I say yes, and I seem to have the perfect quilt pattern waiting in the wings. Handily, I have a decent stash as well :0)
Yip - the butterflies: four down, five to go...
This is just the easiest pattern... and yet so effective!
I also put my head down and after fusing the last bit onto the B&B border, blanket stitched it all down. Now, it's attached and looking fine!
The extra few
I've got plans for a narrow dark green border and then a large print border to finish off. I've been tossing up whether to do a pieced unit for the border cornerstones, repeating the heart motif, small flower and 2" squares... although I really can't be bothered doing any more applique or piecing... but I think it will just finish it off perfectly. Plus I have some leftover units from the other blocks. Along with a few more butterflies... I hope to get these cornerstones and borders completed over the next week.
