On the top of my list this week, is to start on my “Butterfly Migration” quilt. (The quilt was inspired by a radar picture of a butterfly migration.) Right now, I’m in the early stages of work—the not so fun stuff. (finishing the pattern drawing, assigning colors, putting Misty Fuse on the back of my HUNDREDS of fabrics, drawing the templates) The exciting part comes when I actually get to put some of the pieces together.
I find that this is the week I have some time to work on this new project. I have NO IDEA if I can actually make this piece (because I’ve never done anything like it before), but I am excited about it. Today, I am working on assigning colors to the sections I want to start with. Hopefully, I’ll have enough colors assigned and enough fabric prepared to actually start fusing some of the segments together tonight.
Here’s what I’m doing now. I’m referencing my color “master pattern” to label each piece of my drawn (black/white) pattern with a color.
Another “Quilting To Do” in my Quilter’s Planner is to publish at least one blog post a week. I guess I get to cross another “to-do” off my list! Woooooohoooooo!!!!!
