    I'll take a picture then and post it. I might even take pictures of all of them and you can pick the one you want.

    I originally made these for another butterfly quilt like the one I showed off before ...

    But, it became a UFO and I won't be going back to it. I've decided that I"m going to frame some of the blocks in a matted frame and hang on the wall and some others are going to become kitchen decorative hot pads -- not intended to be used as hot pads, just intended to be left on the counter top.

    I'm going to try to sell them at the craft show I'm going to in July.



    They're blocks like these. You can see them close up if you download.

    Thanks. Back when my mom first showed me how to sew, she had me doing a bunch of embroidery things on her machine (since I didn't have any fabric and she didn't want me using up all hers) and she gave me a bunch of her scraps and showed me how to crazy patch the blocks.

    When I finished the blocks, I actually went out and chose that blue border/sashing to finish it.

    But, that was a teaching project that my mom supplied me with to get me working on the sewing machines. I can't believe she let me sit there with that fancy embroidery machine and make all those blocks. She wouldn't let me do it unless she was supervising.

    :lol:

    And I gave that to a colleague who retired and moved out of state as a housewarming gift for her new home. I had decided to make another one, but changed my mind and now I'm going to do other things with the blocks.

    That is so pretty quiltwoman - so different. Is it pieced or embroidery, or hand-sewn?

    Hmmmm. weeeeelllll....it's sort of a trial and error thing... I guess you'd call it reverse applique??? I had the yellow hand-dyed fabric so I made an "overlay in black" of the butterfly.

    All of it is done by machine--trust me, I am NOT that patient! :lol:

    Bebe, since I am still technically laid up from my total knee surgery - can't drive, walk long distances, pretty much confined to home, I have not much to do, so I have been sewing. When I get all the blocks done, I will have to finish projects I have started - LOL. This is much more fun.

    Have quiltwoman's Bear Tracks done - will post tomorrow. I like the pink and black together.

    Bebe,
    Once school resumes, I'll be back at work full-time (nights at the hospital) and I'll have to sleep during the day. Trust me, nothing will get done at my house. It's now or never...

    Beachlady, can't wait to see the pix!
    Til tomorrow,
    Julie

    Thanks Loretta. It's one of those I just HAD to buy because someday, I might need it. :lol:

    Dazzle, your block is beautiful!

    I went to quilt store this morning. I got the rest of my fabrics for the blocks and found a great stripe for my "stinker" commissioned quilt. I"m hoping this will make it more bearable to finish and not look so......ugly.

    Just need to finish washing/pressing and I really should clean up in my sewing room.

    I had to get a new pump for my tiny pond in the garden. I hate the thought of mucking it all out. Anyone want to come and help me??

    quiltwoman, I would be happy to come help you, but I do have an awful summer head cold..so sorry. I guess I'll just have to hole up inside out of the heat and work on some quilt blocks :mrgreen: I will be thinking of you though :wink:

    Don't think I would be of much help today Julie. Don't envy you the job. Knee swollen more than usual with our wet, foggy weather. Good sleeping day!!!
