Days off Flutter by......

For post 598 we return to quilty content. As I said, I've been inspired by our friends baby to revisit a UFO. This started out as a Butterfly Fling Jelly roll. I played about with it some time ago, but it never really took off, I think because I wasn't following a pattern and had no definite purpose for it. If you remember I took out all of the blue strips, I don't know why, but they have returned and are playing the role of corner stones and I also see a blue border somewhere in the (I hope) near future.
It's not a great photo I'm afraid, but hopefully enough to let you see where I'm up to.

I'm on a day off today, I really needed it, the head cold caught up with me and wore me out. I had a lovely lie in this morning and have taken my time puddling about upstairs in the sewing room. I'm just taking a break to get the dinner started, Chilli Con Carne, Yum. Then maybe I'll sew some more, or maybe I'll do a little knitting.

As I said at the top, this is post number 598, only one post left to go. ;-)

I'm sure baby Freya (and her parents) will be delighted with this quilt when it is finished. Take care of yourself and get better soon.

I think a blue border would look great there - it'll help keep the butterflies in!

Sorry about your cold, I hope you recover quickly.

This is looking great Lou - the sashing and blue cornerstones set it off a treat and a blue border in the equation sounds perfect - lovely!

I don't remember seeing this before, but I like it with the blue squares in the sashing. The colours look very pleasant together, and I think a blue border will suit it. Sorry to hear the crocheting hasn't gone well.
