Being out sick also means there is not much going on with the design wall. I did manage to finish up the red-violet version of the Scrappy Butterfly block before succumbing to that virus last week.
|Scrappy Butterflies - Block is available in EQ 7 Block Library|
It's definitely a beautifully bright butterfly. I couldn't resist pulling out all the other butterfly blocks and putting them up on the design wall.
I'm pretty happy with my 12 scrappy butterflies, but now I'm not sure they are going work well in the setting I had worked out last year.
I'm afraid the butterflies may be too bright for the border. I'm pretty committed to the Irish Chain setting with the white and the light blue fabric that was also used as the background for the butterflies. I may opt for a different border, maybe just finish it off with more Irish Chain blocks. I'll have to play around in EQ to see how that looks. I have enough of the light blue background to be able to make that work.
That's it for what's up on the design wall. For more Design Wall Monday, check out the links over at Patchwork Times.
