haven't mentioned this quilt before, but i fell in love with it absolutely a few years ago.
this is it - the butterfly garden quilt by Leanne's House - just lovely!
i decided when i got it that i would do it all by hand (not sure why.....slightly regretting it now that i am more confident with my machine!). but i have been working away at it for a while now.
it is made up of 9 blocks each made up of 9 mini blocks. i have finished 2 blocks and then 3 mini blocks for the 3rd block.....but want to keep it moving.
so i have tried to make it part of my sew daily challenge that i have spoken about before from the about.com quilting forum and at least now i feel i am on some kind of track!
these are the latest 3 mini blocks....i just love the design, colours etc...
i did have a mini disaster last christmas when i took everything i had done away to piece it together into the larger blocks....and my spray bottle leaked in my sewing basket all through a printed pattern. the ink 'melted' all through the blocks! argh! i soaked them in various brands of stain remover to varying results....in the end i had to unpiece some of them and replace fabrics with different ones, and then make sure that i have enough to piece some into the remaining to keep the colours consistent.
got to keep focused!
