|October RSC butterfly block: pink|
I reached for the 60 degree triangle ruler for this one. The upper wings are just rows of little 2" tall triangles. The lower wings are a log cabin style block built around a triangle instead of a square. Looking at this one I wish I had played more with the lower wings in the rest of my butterflies. Not enough to want to remake any though!
I skipped the grey and neutral months, but I made two blue blocks so I now have nine butterflies. I had planned to make extra of some colours to bring the total to 12 but I have decided to just use the nine I have. I may remake the yellow one in stronger yellows though. I'll see how I feel once I make the setting locks and see how everything looks then. Here's the flutter:
|Nine RSC butterfly blocks|
I have enough background fabric but not enough green so this weekend I'm shifting to finishing up a few things.
- Lemoyne stars using various construction methods to decide which one to use in a pattern
- Binding the new and improved Jelly Bean Stars sample
- Adding borders to a new larger and "grown up" Starlight Wishes
- Not finishing up, but at least making progress hand quilting Chic Country

That's a lovely pink butterfly Joanne. I especially like the triangle log cabin blocks and how your butterflies are fluttering across the quilt in your layout. Glad to see that someone is making progress on their short list. My *short* list just keeps getting longer!ReplyDelete
Congrats! on completing your PINK butterfly. I like all 2 of the proposed layouts. No matter how you lay it out, the quilt is going to be stunning!!ReplyDelete
I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing how you switch up the pattern on the leaves of each butterfly. This one blows me away!ReplyDelete
And the setting--SO pretty!!
Beautiful butterflies, and beautiful layout! Wish I had a bit of your creativity, and your energy too! ---"Love"ReplyDelete
Your butterflies are so pretty and I love your quilt design!ReplyDelete
Love your butterflies. I am looking forward to seeing the finish!ReplyDelete
SO much quilty goodness going on at your place!ReplyDelete
The butterflies are beautiful just as they are!
Great layout idea for the butterflies!
Whatever you do with that butterfly quit, it will be pretty with those butterflies. I like your grown-up Starlight Wishes. All good stuff!ReplyDelete
I like the flutter in the on-point setting, with the butterflies flitting in different directions. Nine is a good number!ReplyDelete
I love the fluttering effect in that setting, too! I've enjoyed seeing you make the lovelies!ReplyDelete
That setting seems just right for the nine, lots,of air space around also. They really see to fly. I do prefer the darker yellow in your mockup. Amazing that each one is patched differently, very creative. You must have had lots of fun with them.ReplyDelete
I really like this pink butterfly. And the setting you've created will make for a wonderful quilt!ReplyDelete
I agree with PaulaB Quilts! Such a pretty layout. Good luck accomplishing everything on your list!ReplyDelete
Your butterflies are so pretty. Like the quilt layout too.ReplyDelete
Your butterflies are all so pretty! A darker yellow would probably look better with the other colors but this yellow one is pretty, too. I like the butterflies on point, makes a very interesting setting. Hope you got your short list done so you can start playing with the Anne of Green Gables fabrics. Sounds like fun!ReplyDelete
Very pretty butterfly's! love your setting. So much progress on lots of fronts. Great job.ReplyDelete
Oooh, very pretty! I love all the different ways of piecing the wings. It's going to be a gorgeous finish.ReplyDelete
Oh I really like the layout, hope that is how it stays! Good call on the two blues.ReplyDelete
