Happy Valentine's Day.............

I finished the last butterfly blocks last night.  I think this is the final layout but I won't know for sure until I get the sashing strips sewn on.  

The pattern is shown here. It looks like they used the butterfly body fabric for the corner squares but I think I'll go with something more colorful.

The fabrics are mostly Kaffe Fassett's and a few Brandon Mably's.

I don't usually watch all of the winter Olympics but I had to watch Shaun White.....and what a treat it was!!

The quilt is coming along nicely. I would have like to have seen Shawn's run. Anymore I get up about 4:30 a.m. so it is hard for me to make it to 8 p.m.

love your butterflies. I watch parts of the Olympics and get a kick out of watching the snow boarders and speed skating. I actually watched more of that then the pair skating and individual that I normally do.

I have always been very fond of butterflies and this quilt is breath taking!

I think "more colorful" for those corner squares is a great idea. I think it will really add sparkle to the quilt.

love the butterflies in kaffe. Your thoughts on great Spirit closing and its impact on availability of kaffe.

I bought this pattern but am undecided about which fabrics to use. Your butterfly quilt top is great, just perfect with Kaffe fabric.

Such a beautiful quilt this will be Wanda. Every 4 years I watch as much of the Olympics as I can, especially in the 7 to 11 time period. By then, my eyes are closing and it's time to turn it off. We too watched Shaun earn his 3rd. Gold medal and loved every minute of it. There's a great article online this morning about him and how he's turned into quite the businessman, worth millions and million of dollars.
