    That is wonderful, Blue. I love the movement and color of the butterflies.

    My next project was supposed to be a case to hold my hand sewing stuff, thimble, needles, cotton, etc, out of the fabric you sent with my doll quilt sulabug. :-)

    Blue, Fabulous idea, great execution and as for your energy levels.....truly magnificent.

    Sorry for the loss of your "quilt inspector"... I am sure this quilt would get many pawprints of approval.

    Blue,
    You can always make a case out of the fabric I sent, later if necessary. I am so thrilled to hear that you will be using it. I am still reading my magazines that you sent & love them dearly!! Thank you again!!

    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.
    I really like the idea of applique in opposite corners. awesome.
    Blue, glad to hear that losing wee kitty, sent you in a very positive creative coping mode. A fine tribute. After all, she is playing in the sunshine, with the butterflies now. :wink:

    WOW! The butterflies were a terrific inspiration! How about a solid black border and then a beautiful multi-color stripe cut on the bias for the border?
    Sorry about the quilt inspector.......My condolences!

    Now that's a possibility.... a colourful stripe, I have some fabric hidden away somewhere for another project. Wonder if I can pinch some.

    Totally awesome and the thing that makes it so is your colorful butterflies. It would just be ho-hum without them. Great idea! Don't you just love it when you have enough quiet time to be creative? Then the ideas flow and the adrenalin starts pumping. Love it. Thanks for sharing. You inspire me!

    Wow Blue! The B&W blocks are stunning but the butterflies turn the whole thing into a WORK OF ART!!!! :D I think a wide black border with some vine applique and flowers in the same jewel tones with butterflies flitting in and out of them would be beautiful but you've got the 'eye' girl - whatever you decide will be fab! :D

    Flattery will get you anything! lol :-)

    I've gone back to the idea of a plant / vine in opposite corners. I like the idea of colourful striped fabric too, but the vine keeps sticking in my mind. Off to the lqs tomorrow to get some black and white for the outside border.

    Wow, that is such a beautiful quilt! :) I've been out of town and just saw this. You really added punch to those beautiful blocks. I can't wait to see the finished product.

    I am so sorry to hear about your little qult inspector. These things hit me hard, too. It sounds like you needed the quilt therapy!

    Hey Blue Chicken....... Great thinking !! Love the lift that the butterflies make , Can understand why you needed something to lift. as the B/W becomes a tad bland and uninteresting eh? Didn't thank that would happen . :D
