Weekend stitchin....

It all started with a UFO ......


and I realised I didn't have enough light fabric to make the stars for them....

so I finished off the quilting on 2 of the Trapunto blocks... this is giving me good free motion practice


most definitely a time of going into la-la land....


then I mowed the dirt grass ....



and put the borders are on the butterfly garden quilt


maybe I should keep it as a flimsy... I like it from the back too!


this is a close up of the very pretty border fabrics
... there is a darker pink for the binding and such a pretty backing...
I am not going to hurry into quilting


I have done most of the stems on my star flowers ... now these leaves need to be needleturned on... 


and then I started something new....


I also went to buy some background (this is some pretty from the Papillon range) 
so now I can get back to my UFO that started off my weekend ....


can you tell I've been eating chocolate?


Righto.... gotta go... not sure why but I better do it .....

Such a busy weekend, and some beautiful work to show for it. I made the little village quilt in red, looks just as pretty in green And isnt the papillion fabric gorgous I too have just purchased some of this. We seem to do similar projects and definately have the same taste.

So a weekend fueled by a little chocolate sure turned out a lot of gorgeousness.
Love your butterfly garden quilt, you sure picked pretty colours for that one, and how could you resist such a cute bag.
Enjoy stitching that UFO that started all the activity.
