Happy 2019

I have been sewing EPP butterflies from my scraps for a year now and using quilt as you go I am slowly getting them into a quilt. Close up of one....I do love quilting feathers.

This is sort of how it will look. The littlest one is made with 1/4 in hexies....hence only one!

This is my next project I think. The cream on top is actually a greeny yellow, so I can use some more scraps.

A friend showed me this and then loaned me the pattern. One Bali Pop  and some black later my first ( and probably last) attempt at Bargello. Still have to put the antenna on and then contemplate the quilting. So many seams that it may go to my friendly quilter!Love it though and am very happy with how it turned out.

May 2019 be a year of health and happiness for us all.
