    Woo Wee Blue

    Thats a beauty you've got yourself there. Those blocks are wonderful & the Butterflies just add that little bit more impact - don't you think ?

    I love, love, love, love, love it. A good job well done I say.

    What about if you finished off with a small border of the black/gray that you have between the blocks, then maybe a black border after that with some butterflies on it. I think that'd be cute!
    That sounds like a good plan!

    Would a simple vine appliqued be too much in a black border? Maybe just in the bottom and left corner borders. Or in opposite corners maybe.

    Wow, when inspiration hits, you go for it, and it turns out absolutely great!
    That makes your black and white top totally unique. I also collect butterfly fabric, but applique is NOT on my list of things to do yet. Did you use fusible backing, hand applique, or what?

    It's fusible... there's no way I could hand applique that fast! ;-)

    I still have to sew round the edges, that's a job for tomorrow. lol
