Another One Pinned


Today I pinned the Butterflies. It has been sitting on my design wall staring at me, begging to be finished, so I spent an hour or so pinning. I am thinking of doing free motion on it. The blue will be some sort of meander. I may try to get a cloudy look that I have seen in some magazines. I think I will try some feathers on the wings but maybe when I get to that stage I will chicken out. I'll see how the meander goes. It probably won't go any farther than this before Christmas but at least when I am ready to quilt, it will be pinned and waiting. You can see in the picture that the back is orange. I have lots of orange thread but I'm not sure how that will look on the blue. I'll have to try a sample. The other option is orange bobbin thread and blue on the top. I'll know once I make a couple of samples.

I never seem to manage pins! I wonder if I am alone in this. I have resorted to quilt spray with a lot of tacking.

The butterflies are really lovely.

It will give you something to look forward to and do when the "after-Xmas" blues hit! Good luck with the quilt and merry Christmas!

Oh imagine sleeping under a cloud of butterflies.

I know you are going to machine quilt it but are you using a long arm quilter or a sewing machine?
