    Here is a block of this quilt Panther Creek and I are making long distance. We each do one.

    She wants to see the block, I should have it pieced together today or tomorrow.

    This is from Eleanor Burns book still stripping, called Cornerstones

    I have that butterfly in 4 colorways!!!!!! I love it, and your square. I would not have thought of using it in strips. How wide are they?

    2.5 each one alot of cutting and power sewing but its coming together. I like to do block by block so this was a different way for me.

    I love Butterfly's. Gotta get me some more im almost out.

    I purchased 3 books off the internet for a pretty good price, all of them Eleanor Burns. I really liked them and ordered Panther Creek the same books and sent to her for Christmas. We have been watching you all that are in the IRR and loved the idea so I thought we could do our own kinda way. She got to pick the 1st quilt I get to pick the next. She lives in MO and I live in OK, so this is our way of being together.

    Here is the progress I have made today, had to rip out a few seams so slow progress today.

    The color that looks orange is a mauve.
