DONE and DONE!

I really struggled with what to do for my applique. I had thought I would do reverse applique (something I've never tried) but once I saw the fabric I realized I probably wouldn't have enough for two blocks and get lots of contrast....

So I put the fabric aside for awhile until I was printing a leaf template from Martha Stewart's web site and there happened to be a butterfly on the same page. "Voila!" I thought! If a butterfly doesn't say colorful I don't know what does!


I wish I would have arranged them both like the one on the left, I think the possibilities for quilting are really cool. C'est la vie!

Butterflies are my favorite thing as a trip through my house would tell you. I love both of the setups and think that the 2 different arrangements will allow for a little more freedom in block setup. Great blocks.

The one on the left is a simple and perfect design! I'll remember that one for another project!
