Peer Pressure

23 comments
Everyone is doing it. All my friends are all making them. I feel like this is Jr. High and I must must must follow the crowd. Butterflies. Haven't you seen them just everywhere? Every time I see them on a blog I want to make them. So today I stopped the presses and made 3. I had to do it. You'll see 2 different sizes above. I used the PKM directions for the one on the right with help from Amy's tutorial. Then the ones on the left I made somewhat in my own size. And yes, the are slightly wonky (there, I said it) but they are supposed to be. And they are fun to make. But I can't lose my focus so I only allowed myself to play for so long. I have no idea what I'll do with them.

Back to my list of things to do. This is the latest block for the Jelly Roll Sampler. I can't say it was my favorite. It looks simple but putting it together was dealing with weird seaming. However, it turned out ok. It is slightly off kilter, but it is done. So squint a little when you look at it.

Check. And I'm up to date with that project.

I haven't noticed the butterflies. They look fun to make, though, like the red crosses everyone was doing a while ago. http://www.flickr.com/photos/calicodaisy/4522948809/in/set-72157623008458576/

Haha -- congratulations on your wonkiness -- both the block and the word. You're making great progress LOL.

Nedra said...

Yes, you MUST join us! Love the blue background. ( you are going to get started and won't be able to put them down)

Needled Mom said...

I am seeing lots of butterflies lately.

Today is my day to work on my JR block. Wish me luck!

Sandi said...

Looks like I need to take a trip around some of your favorite blogs and look for butterflies. Your butterflies are the first I've seen. I think I'll check out Nedra first as she gave a clue when she said "join us". I gave up on the Jelly Roll Sampler. I started one too many projects and am paring things down to see if I can get caught up.

Michele said...

Those gals hooked me too. At least it wasn't ciggies!

Another one on the butterfly bandwagon! I think I may have to at some point too. Yours are too pretty.

Pat said...

I still need to do that jelly roll block. Now I'm dreading it after what you said about it....LOL

Jan said...

Oh Nanette, honey, thank you so much for your kind words and for your prayers!!! I so appreciate it and love having you visit w/me!!! As usual, everything below is awesome and I can't wait to see the end results of those gorgeous DP's!!! Quilting is always so good for my soul and I love seeing all that you do :) God Bless :)

The butterfly blocks are so cute! I am not starting any new projects for a while... but eventually, some butterflies would make a cute mini quilt!

pratima said...

These butterfly blocks are so sweet! I especially love the green. It is making the butterflies sparkle. The strawberry block is very pretty!
