Let’s Bee Social #62
Here we are again! My favourite day of the week!
To update you on the Zebra progress, although I have indeed completed the 16 Zebra blocks need for my ZebraZ quilt, I have not yet decided how I am going to apply their eyes and nostrils. Either by an embroidery stitch, such as the satin stitch on my machine, or by applique. And I did not want to rush into this decision.
In the mean time, feeling a great need for spring to start showing some signs of returning, I figured perhaps I can “will it to arrive” by employing some warm and happy thoughts. So I dug out my Pretty Butterfly quilt pattern. And dug into my Architextures fat quarters that I received as a gift from Sew Sisters Quilt Shop back when I shared Kona Challenge tutorial on their blog. I made a few butterfly blocks for a table runner.
You can find the Pretty Butterfly quilt pattern for sale here in my pattern shop.
When it came time for the quilting, I was planning to do some straight line quilting from edge to edge. But when I sat down…. organic wavy lines in this sunny yellow Aurifil thread #1135 appeared and made quick work of the job. Looks like golden rays of sunshine!

As soon as this runner was finished – all bound and ready to go – I grabbed my camera and the runner, my snowmobile boots and heavy coat – and headed out for pictures.
It’s snowing. Again.
No sign of spring yet.
NOW…. Let’s PARTY!!!!
