Fun in my fabric world....

Plodding on...

Things are not happening at a great pace here...lots of hand work...slow & contemplative.
Still working away on the butterfly quilt I started a fortnight ago at Nundle.
Having fun with the colours...enjoying the needleturn.
The original quilt called for 9 butterflies...
I might do 16 to make it bigger....I will have to see if I can get some more of the background spot.
The other project consuming my time has been the Sue Ross BOM with MO.

Having changed one fabric, I am now having difficulty with fabric selection for the inner triangles on my whirligig block. No doubt I will work it out, but I have set it aside to have a "creative break". I am enjoying the hand piecing though! The support of some other ladies doing this block has been invaluable...suerossbom.blogspot.com.

I do really love these butterflies. I think the colour you have chosen for the triangles on your bom are perfect too xo
