My butterfly quilt under construction

I'm excited about how the blue background looks. You know, I got the idea for the background at my doctor's office. The assistant was wearing one of those colorful nurse's blouses. Her blouse had butterflies against a blue background. It just goes to show--I have to keep my eyes open for new ideas. I've half of the squares joined together now. I have to embroider antennae on the butterflies. I thought that it would be easier, and prevent too much stretching of the fabric if I joined the blocks first. I'm just going to make all the antennae the same color of brown, which is one of my favorites--DMC 918.
I've had a busy weekend because my sister was visiting from out-of-town. And we got together with some family and friends.

Really cute butterflies! What a happy springy quilt. Yup, always have to keep your eyes open. You never know when inspiration will strike.
