Butterflies Make Me Happy

I've decided that it's the little things in life that make me happy.  The first flutter of a butterfly at Spring ... the sneak of a jelly bean when the kids aren't watching ... catching perfectly spaced stitches on my needle and little 6" blocks that are the Farmer's Wife.

Today I finished my very first (cue dramatic music) HAND PIECED Farmer's Wife block, Ta Da!!!

She's a little higgly-piggly but I'm sticking with the mantra that it just adds to the hand pieced quilt charm - everyone on side?  Good, I'm glad we agree.

This is block 14 and is called "Butterfly at the Crossroads" ... yer I know I didn't start at block 1 - but where's the fun in that?

The fabric is Lily Ashbury's range called High Street.  I really love the fresh and vibrant colours in this range mixed with the pretty flora inspired prints.

Happy, happy, happy!



  1. It's just beautiful! I don't see any higgledy piggledy - I think you've done a fabulous and all hand-sewn! Impressive!

  2. Looks pretty good to me! And very cheery - hope you are on the mend!

  3. Loving the Butterfly....beautiful.

  4. So pretty!!! I am so impressed with your hand stitching!!

  6. Wow! I would never have guessed that you had hand pieced that beautiful block. It is gorgeous. Love the fabrics!

  7. Love your blocks! gorgeous fabric choices. Now let me get this right... are you going to hand piece all of the Farmers Wives blocks?
