Work in Progress - Butterfly Quilt

                                                               Hello there.

                        I've had a busy week trying to make some headway with this quilt.  I've never done so much machine applique and found it to be quite time consuming.


                       Last time you saw this, I had all the pieces cut out but nothing sewn down.


                                      Now I have everything where it should be......

                               For the sunflowers I used  variagated thread.


                          Next up .... time to add a bit of detail to the butterflies.



                                              I am really looking forward to quilting this.


Then I added the churn dash blocks around the edge..........


followed by another border of the gorgeous turquoise batik fabric.
I'm looking forward to a full day in my sewing room working on the next round of blocks.  I think it would make a great wall hanging just left as it is right now but this one is to be a bed quilt. 

Next post I hope to have the top completed and be ready for quilting.

See you all next time.
Rhianon.

It's looking gorgeous, Rhianon! The variegated thread on the sunflower petals gives it a beautiful depth. Can't wait to see the full top.
