Waterlilies and Butterflies.

Late yesterday in the afternoon sun  I spied these 2 beauties flowering away in my big blue water bowl.
They were partly hiding behind an overhanging shrub so I'm glad I didn't miss them.
Today again is drizzly....but I don't mind...I've just baked two big fruit loaves from fruit I had put aside to make another Christmas cake. So packets of red and green glace cherries have been calling to me from the fridge for a while. As the other cakes are finished this will be useful now.

This is what is spread out on my table.  My next quilt! I am making it up as I go but writing it all down too so if I like the result I will have a pattern and instructions at the end. It all started ( haltingly on the 3rd  audition of the fabrics ) to use up the Moda Butterflies 5" pack I had and encorporate the left over jelly roll pieces.

These stylized vague butterfly shapes will go in the larger blocks around the quilt with a larger still appliqued flower and butterfly block in the centre.

Thanks for your comments everyone. You had me laughing loudly!
