I finished the last of the 54 hand appliqued butterfly blocks necessary to make a quilt like the one I inherited from my grandmother. I used 54 different 30s reproduction fabrics. The buttonhole and back stitches are done in black perle cotton #8. The background fabric is Kona Snow.
Now I can start assembly on the top. I think Kona cottons are on sale next week at Hancock Fabrics so I'm hoping they still have some Kona Spring which is pretty close to the same green color my grandma used in most of her quilts. I'll also pick up some muslin for the backing.
And after that I'll be ready to do some hand quilting like grandma's.
