It’s getting much colder here! Brrrrr! Winter has most definitely arrived!
And it’s getting harder to photograph my projects outside – icy showers are never too far away!
For a while now I have been wanting to make Lillyella’s Take Wing Butterfly pattern.
Butterflies hold symbolic meaning for me, and when I first saw Nicole’s Take Wing Butterfly, it took my breath away!
The butterfly is foundation paper pieced in 5 sections. I LOVE foundation piecing because of the crisp, sharp points and lines you get from this technique.
And Nicole includes a really helpful colouring sheet, so you can colour in the sections of your butterfly first to get an idea of colour and fabric placement.
The fabrics I used were mostly Sunprints by Alison Glass, leftovers from a rainbow quilt I made in the summer.
Most of the pieced sections are small, so this would also be a great scrap-buster project. And if you don’t fancy a wallhanging, it can easily be transformed into a beautiful cushion.
I will be teaching this next term as part of my new program of classes. I do hope you can join us for some foundation piecing fun!
