butterfly quilt

This is my friendship block quilt. My guild after a person is a member for a year, lets the member pick a pattern and many guild members make a block for that person. Then that person gets to make themself a quilt. I got my blocks way back in 1998 or so.
I just finished the quilt in August. It was pinned for quilt for about 3 years. I did some machine and some hand quilting on it.
I was very happy to see it done.

This is the block I chose for my birthday block in the birthday block swap that I am taking part in online.
I have 11 of the 20 blocks made and don't start to send them to the birthday ladies till Sept. I have really enjoyed working on them. I have been sewing quite a bit as my hubby was away on business and I am on holidays. I am supposed to be reorganizing the basement and my sewing room too but I've only done a little of that . I need to make a lemon pie for my son today as we will celebrate his 19th birthday tonight. Dave and Jenn will be away on Monday which is actually his birthday.
Hard to believe my first born is already 19. Where does the time go.
I have been working on an Ugly challenge as well. I am to the binding but have to find my corner tool before I can do that part. So I guess I will reorganize my sewing room while I am looking for it. I used it not too long ago but can't put my fingers on it at the moment. I will post a picture when it is finished. I have till the end of Sept to get it done and mailed. I'll likely take it to my guild meeting in Sept before I mail it out.
Happy quilting.

This is one of my bom blocks that I did incorrectly first. I sewed the black corners to the wrong sides. I then unsewed them and sewed them to the correct sides.
So the second picture is the way it was supposed to be in the first place.
I am now on my holidays. My hubby is off tonight on a business trip. I have alot planned for at home. I will be very busy while he is gone.
Happy quilting.

This is the july bom from Hearts to hands. It didn't come up in the previous note.
I didn't hear that I won this one so I guess not. I'm now waiting for the Aug fabric and pattern to show up in my mail.
I am enjoying doing this one.
I am now on holidays. My hubby goes away for work on Sunday morning so I figure I will have alot of time to sew and some time to reorganize my basement.. The reorganization needs to be done and I figure I'll work a little sew alot work a little sew some more if you get the drift. Hope to get more sewing then cleaning done but some of both. We will see how it goes.
Happy quilting everyone.
