Fluttering about

I tried really hard to fight the urge not to make a quilt block while piecing a simple squares quilt.   The squares were lacking something and just didn't set right with me.  So I grabbed a cuppa and took a quick trip through the internet looking for a simple 8 inch butterfly pattern.  After coming up empty handed I decided to just draw up my own.


  The horizontal rows might become vertical columns or frames for the butterflies.   HMM...we'll just have to wait and see what the day brings.  You can see below that the rows were numbered ready to be pieced into a quilt when inspiration hit. 


 I mentioned earlier in the week..... sticking to a written pattern is pretty much impossible, it seems that the same is true with my own pattern.
