Design Wall Monday - Butterflies Continued

I was semi-productive this weekend and I have ALL Wonky Butterfly blocks sewn together. I actually made more than the 177 that I need and I think I'll incorporate the extras into the back.

This is the center of the quilt - 121 blocks -set 11 X 11. I tried to keep the colors moving about and this is the point in every scrap quilt where you could spend from now to eternity moving them around or just stop and sew them together. I am hoping to get all these rows together today and I know that I will move blocks around even as I sew them up.

I'm putting a border of butterflies around this center. I have to cut some more spacing background pieces but it should be pretty simple. Its a good day to sew. It is raining again. I'm beginning to grow moss on my northern side with all this moisture and my hair is becoming terminally frizzy. Off to wind more bobbins!

Happy stitching-
carol fun
