Look what I found in my garden this morning. Some pretty butterflies came visiting!

I hope they stay around for awhile.

OOhhhh..you are amazing! While on the Quilt Run this last week in So. Cal. I admit, I did buy a few more Kaffe's. I just couldn't help myself!

You must be sweet to attract such beautiful butterflies. I like the whimsical, abstract feel of the appliques, it fits the fabric design. When will more alight?

wishes, true and kind said...

I adore your butterflies -- and birds. Love your use of fabric!
