Kaleidoscope of Butterflies and Orange Triangle Border thingy

Clouded Sulphur for April 2017.

Tilted 'coins' with border added, that's right just two sides for effect.

Happy April!!
 
Featuring my butterfly for April, from my butterfly calendar, the Clouded Sulpher .
I'm celebrating butterflies with Ann @ fretnotyourself , Kaleidoscope of Butterflies.
Clouded Sulphers  live in North America and can be seen in meadows, fields and roadsides.
They're also known to swarm around mud puddles.

I've had some time to work on my version of a 'coin' quilt. I tilted the coins and now they're on edge and I've added borders on just two sides. The asymmetrical look is speaking to me. This is another of my small quilts. I don't have a large work space right now so small is the thing. And small is great for trying out design experiments.

Have a great Monday and I'll be by to visit.

  1. I love borders which don't appear on every side! What a wonderful photo of the Clouded Sulphur butterfly, must be a neat calendar to have on your wall.

  3. You have not just added borders, you have added a lot of interest, too. The eye is drawn to those triangles. Great work, Janie.

  4. Asymmetrical borders work so well on this little quilt. There's an art to making small quilts work and this one does. Thanks for participating in both #AHIQChineseCoins and the Butterfly linkup.

  5. I don't think it would have occurred to me to do that with the borders - and I have to say I like it.
