    I was cutting my squares after embroidering the butterflies and mean't to cut them to be sewn on point, but forgot, OOPS!

    But I like the way it turned out anyway :D The butterflies are in variegated thread.

    This is another baby quilt (just the top right now) for charity for my guild. It's 40 X 40.

    What a lucky baby who will get the quilt!! It is really pretty! I love that the butterflys aren't facing straight up. It is a better arrangement in my opinion (more interesting) to have them at an angle.

    It's a great looking quilt!

    You know the best thing about your "oops"...no one will ever know. You can tell people you planned it like that! It's so beautiful!
