    Blue - that is terrific - I love the butterflies.

    Sorry about the quilt inspector - how are the kids? You have kids, right?

    The butterfly appliques would never have occurred to me. They are perfect on the quilt.

    I'm so sorry your little quilt inspector died.

    So original! Just the little bit of color of the butterflies takes the quilt to a whole new level! Love it!

    My goodness! That just really made this quilt happen!! You can bet that I'm going to keep your inspiration in the back of my mind if I ever do a black and white quilt! It's beautiful!

    You are definately an inspiration for the rest of us...at least me! This is exactly why I like hanging out with quilters! And we get so excited about what is created. Thanks so much for sharing with us.

    I love it! I've only recently been interested in black and white quilts. That little bit of color sure does make it POP! Another quilt to add to my list of projects to do someday. Thanks for sharing!

    WOW!!! what inspiration. That is going to be one outstanding quilt. I would have never thought of Buttierfies. But I like the B&W without the Butterflies on it. I think it would be awesome just B&W when it is finished.

    And don't tell anyone, but the whole thing is upside down... the cat block was supposed to be at the top, and the row with my fern at the bottom. I was in too much of a hurry! lol
    I love your butterfly inspiration!!! :D :D :D They are the perfect touch of color 8) 8) 8)
    You must have known deep in your mind how cute the kitty looks at the bottom of the quilt, looking up at all those butterflies :shock: ...flying around, just out of her reach :wink: 8) :lol:

    Love it. And I agree that the kitty went just where she wanted to be, looking up to swat at the butterflies.

    Yep, we have four kids. They're ok, it's been hubby and I that have been a mess. :?
    I think the kids are kind of used to me bringing home animals that are only going to have short lives, or need extra care, they're a little more "cie la vie" than I am. I fight tooth and nail against mother nature, determined not to let her win. She always does though.

    I am thinking I may put a simple flower with a couple of green leaves in the bottom corner of the border, and a few more butterflys, to finish it off.

    I'd best go get dressed and get some housework done first! :-)

    Got the outside sashing on, but now I'm stuck..... no idea what to do for the border.

    I'm thinking thin solid black strip, then....... ??



    Last try... this better be the right way up!!

    Ooooooooooooooh- I really like the butterflies. Perfect dashes of color. I like the idea of continuing the sashes into the border and adding a final dash of black on the outside - and a few splashes of flowers - like you're talking about in the bottom corner - butterflies LOVE some flowers. Is it K3 who is our Floral guru? Someone is bound to have a few flower suggestions.

    Blue - you've taken the pressure off all the rest of us - now no one has to hurry to be the first one to finish a quilt from the black and white blocks :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: We didn't even hae time to catch our breath :lol: :lol: :lol:

    'Slow down, you move too fast, got to make the moooooment last! Whistle down the avenue - - -"

    Can't remember more at the moment, but it expresses my thoughts!

    It's been a while since I've had such a clear picture of what I want in my head, I couldn't risk mucking around and having it disappear! ;-)

    I have no more black and white fabric, I'll have to go get some. But I'm thinking nothing too busy, and a very simple flower / plant design, strong lines nothing dainty. ??
