Today was a “journey” kind of day, rather than a “destination” kind of day!
I had big plans for today and nothing was going to slow me down! I would prep (and maybe stitch!) the next block of The Civil War Bride quilt. First I stitched all of the stems in place.
Then I chose the fabric for the vase and the Granny Smith apples. So far, so good.
After I prepped the flowers and glued them in place, I realized that I chose fabrics that were just not speaking to me. I made a deal with myself. I would go have lunch and then look at the block again. (Maybe it was a low blood-sugar kind of thing!) If I still didn’t love it, I would choose new fabrics for the flowers.
So I went from this…
Needless to say I was a little disappointed that I did not accomplish more of the block, but the butterfly more than made up for it! I wanted to find a fabric that shouted BUTTERFLY! So I searched through my stash and I found this!
I fussy-cut the wings and here is my butterfly! I was so amused!!
Til next time….
