After finishing my last quilt (Lulu Roses) I decided my next quilt would be one that required zero thinking.
Since I’ve made several Flower Quilts (and one Butterfly quilt) … I decided it would be cool if we could make a Butterfly Quilt with 2 Layers Cakes and 8 Fat Quarters.
I will admit that buying yards of fabric is way more affordable!!! But for me I have to think about how much I use my arms and what causes me pain. Using a paper trimmer and a rotary cutter are two activities that I have to limit (for now).
This past weekend I cut all the butterflies using the Accuquilt Critters Die.
It takes one minute per butterfly to stitch around each of them … 80 Blocks + 80 Butterflies … 80 minutes of sewing. Break that down into 20 minute increments (It took me four sessions of sewing to finish). After typing all that I’m wondering … is that info helpful?
That’s as far as I’ve gotten … I’m sad to say I haven’t touched my machine since Sunday …. I’ll share more when I’ve made some progress.
Happy Fat Tuesday!!
