After lunch, I decided to come downstairs and get some more work done on the butterfly quilt top. I would love to get this done today. I'm no going to push it.
I've been working on the blocks and watching Diagnosis Murder. I forgot how much I like the show. I would have been watching my DVR shows but the TV down here doesn't have it set up. lol
The funny part is that I think of things to say on here, but when I start typing I can't remember what I was thinking. The brain takes off in another direction! lol
As I pick each block, I found two blocks alike. So, I need to have one on one side and one on another.
I decided to go ahead and cut the borders from the fabric so that I would have them when I was done. That was a mistake, as I came up short. First thing I did was get in the car and drive 45 mins to Yelm, WA and went to GeeGee's Quilting Shop. I could not believe I came up short. It wasn't by much and if I would have rethough the border piece, I could have made it. Maybe. The pits of it all is that they were out of the fabric. Then on the way home I remembered I bought the last of the bolt. So, I picked up the red that was the same fabric design. I could not find anything I would be happy with. I'm not happy that it is a bright red, but I can live with it. Now I am going to take out the two pieces I put in and replace them with red. I think it will look better with the red on the top and bottom and not on he sides.
I just wanted to see what it would look like. I do like it. Just wish I had more of the green.
While I was writing the blog for the Thursday group, my mother called and we talked about this. I believe I may have a way to fix my problem. I will do it and see how I like it.
Who knows I may use a similar layout for the Japanese dolls. I really do want to get them done as well. Still need to work on Katt's black and white quilt first. I will do that as soon as this one is done.
I'm thrilled to be Happy Quilting!!
