Random Notions – Butterflies & Bamboo

Greetings!  I hope everyone out there is staying nice and cool inside.  Oh, unless you are up north where there are snow storms happening – I hope you folks are staying inside and warm! 

I got all my circles done - all 42 of them.  After about 2 dozen, I got into a rhythm and I think the remainder came out better.  Seeing all 42 on the wall, laid out in rows of 7 X 6, I didn’t like it.  So I took 7 of them out and made it 5 X 7, and I think it looks loads better – 
Maybe I will figure out some sort of small companion wall hanging for the other 7 blocks. 

It’s hard to tell, but because there are Butterflies and Bamboo in the prints, that is what I am calling it.  Now I am trying to figure out what to make a border out of – since this was a charm pack, I don’t have any yardage of those fabrics, and I really don’t feel like going out on a hunt for them, not to mention I probably couldn’t afford to buy it right now anyway.  So I will be rummaging through the old stash for a couple of days to hopefully find something that looks good with it.  I am itching to start something else, but lately I have been trying to finish a project before moving on.

Other than that, I have just been helping Layla with her quilt – we are onto the border now, and she is going to have to piece part of it.  I think she kind of lost her momentum by finishing up all the 9 patches so quickly last week.  Fingers crossed we will have it done next week, and in time to take to Janet the longarmer when I go to pick something up soon.

Hope all is well you.  Thanks for stopping by!
