What's on Your Worktable Friday???

12 butterfly blocks finished, now how to set them?

More blocks I'm working on ....

Happy Friday and weekend!!!

I've sewn up 12 mini butterfly blocks, and yes, in the picture one block has a seam partially picked out because I needed to redo that seam. Now I'll decide whether to finish the mini quilt according to the pattern, Mini Painted Ladies,
or to add some wonky log cabin frames around them.

Also, I'm finishing nine patch, framed nine patch and snowball blocks for my sampler quilt I'm working on in 

Taking classes, online classes are so convenient, helps me to be a better instructor. I teach sewing and quilt classes at a local fabric store. Watching good quilters teach and working through other people's instructions keeps me on my toes.

Watermelon and sandals, hope you're enjoying your summer!

  3. The butterflies are soon ready to fly off; you need to stitch them together soon! They are lovely and so colourful
    I heard the first cicadas of the season in Tokyo today, soon it will be the end of the rainy season and the heat will be oppressive.
    AC and fans, hope you are enjoying YOUR summer.

  5. Your butterflies are outstanding - wonder what they'd look like paired with log cabins, because butterflies would be in the gardens surrounding the cabins. Yeah, and you really want to use MY logic!!
