Stitching Hard

Working away on getting 'Forks' pieced from black'n'white fabrics that I recieved for my birthday FQswap. I saw that Dale has two quilts done and thought I had better get a wriggle on!
those of you who know what I have been reading lately should get the name of this quilt; more so when you see it all together....
Butterfly Garden
Working hard on the stitching side of Butterfly Garden.

Thanks for all the comments about DearJane - I have passed these all onto my friend. For anyone out there thinking of starting this quilt here are two important links;

Dear Jane

That Quilt

If you look at Friends in Stitching second block that was two posts earlier you will notice that the top right hand square is stitched on differently to the rest! A email buddy pointed this out, I never noticed! In fact I didn't pay ANY attention to how the squares were, I just sewed! Now that I can see this it will bug me, so I will change it around - which thankfully is easy enough to do with it in the corner!
Thanks Kerry!

I love the black and white fabrics, can't wait to see more of it. How interesting the butterfly garden is with the stitching on the quilt blocks. Are you just stitching the blocks or the top or are you quilting and stitching it at the same time? Looks like an incredible amount of work. I bet it will be beautiful when it is finished.

Hey Bec! Will look forward to seeing your Butterfly Garden blocks, since I'm working on block two at the moment - maybe we'll keep each other motivated! :0) I decided against doing the stitched blocks like you've shown and replaced them with some four-patches - trying to stitch in a straight line THAT MUCH would have driven me around the bend ... again! :0) Happy stitching - Bear Hugs!

You have been busy. I've been collecting some black and white fabrics, so love seeing what others are doing.
