The Evolution of a Butterfly

OK.. call me crazy...

It is Heart and Hands Retreat this weekend in Kenosee Lake, Sk

Ordinarily......

 I try to pick a mindless project so I can concentrate on visiting.

Not this year....

This Butterfly has been in the cocoon stage for awhile...


With it's many blocks to contemplate,

it has taken alot of thinking!!


I gathered a few interesting stripes, batiks and prints


Started cutting out the blocks and bagging them for retreat


But as they got more complicated.

I remembered how I was able to keep the last project all together for guild


As I cut each set of blocks, 

I layered them on my design board and Press and Sealed each layer


This way.... it's all laid out and ready to sew when I get there!!



Genius!!!

What may not be so GENIUS is what the end result will be!!
Might be more 'Mad Scientist' or  'complete do-over'...

Stayed tuned...

Christa
