Bryce Eleanor liked the butterfly.
I inserted the clothespin to show that the strip can be lifted.
I cut out a bunch of 2 1/2" blocks for the next quilt. This took awhile as I was using any scrap large enough for the blocks, so often only two or three at a time. Finally, got enough cut out to piece the top, using extra blocks for making the prairie points and loops.
A few prairie points scheduled for this edge, a lacy flower from a piece of vintage linen, buttons sewed on and pulled through loops. These can be buttoned and unbuttoned. Still need to add the fabric flowers from last year and some more buttons, but it is coming along.
The goal is to use only things I have on hand. The only things I will concede to buying will be thread, if needed, a new pair of quilting gloves, and new blades for my rotary cutter.
Bryce Eleanor visited this weekend, bringing Freddy. Freddy is a stuffed frog that each of the kids in her class gets to take home for a weekend. They take pictures of Freddy and write about it in Freddy's book.
Freddy visited with Stinker and Lucy, and I made him a little quilt with left over blue and white patches. B.E. is holding it with the back facing out, but the front looks like the above, just much smaller. Fee suggested I make Freddy a hair piece, so in the pic below, you can see the green yarn sticking up on his head.
OK--it's Monday. I'm going back to quilt on the new little quilt.
What are you working on this week?
