Design Wall Monday- Butterflies are free...
Wonky butterflies are free if you make them out of fabric you already own - right? Right? Oh I'm glad I'm correct. All of these dotty wonky butterflies are fabrics from my stash as is all of the background fabric. I figure I'm about a third of the way done with this. My plan is to have a center of 15 blocks by 15 blocks. Then an open space and then an additional row of butterflies.
Here is my selection of fabrics for the butterflies- look a cotton rainbow! And an up close view of my dotty pretties.
Cool colors and -
And this is a couple of these beauties up close. These blocks do waste a lot of background fabric but I'm ok with that. I looked at both of the tutorials and the one that uses charm squares is a more efficient use of fabric but I wanted the larger block.
I should have plenty of sewing time this week, since the forecast is for more rain and Lowe's is totally out of supplies to build an ark - I checked on Saturday. Hope your weather is drier and you have time to play.
