I've appliqued all 7 of my butterflies I made last week to my quilt. I then made a bullion knot (with between 15-30 wraps depending upon the butterfly) for the body. The antennae are pistil stitches. I used 1 strand of #8 black perle and 2 strands of DMC glow in the dark embroidery floss. The entire quilt is quilted in glow in the dark threads (more on that in another post later on) so I think the butterflies needed a bit of glow too. Now I need to finish sewing that purple spider and web binding down around the 59x63 quilt and I'll be ready to show off my challenge project in more detail. So...I'm about ready to sit and relax and stitch down that binding.
And if there's more time left before bedtime after that then I'll work some more on my CQJP 2013 Project - my Crazy Cravings lap quilt.
The way things are going in this crazy world all of the foods in my quilt might well be banned in my descendants life times.
Registration is open for Crazy Quilt Journal Project 2014 in case you are interested. I already know what my project will be!
