At It Again...

The 2011 Butterfly Quilt Committee met again today.

We cut out applique pieces.

Here we are pulling the paper backing off the fusible side of the appliques.

We then placed them on the quilt top.

There were several pieces to place.  So we got in the floor to place them instead of standing on our heads.  :)

I started appliqueing the big butterfly down and then the machine I was using knotted up on me.  So.. I wound up ripping out a few stitches.

Lenora is going to take the top home and sew down the rest of the appliques with another machine.  We are using a blanket stitch to sew down the appliques.  After she gets the appliques sewn down, she will add the last row of blocks and sew on the first border.   The quilt will then be sent to me and I will sew on the last three borders.    It will be ready for quilting then.

Here's what the quilt top looked like by the end of the day...

We plan on having it done within the next week or so... then hopefully will have it quilted and done by the time of our next quilt guild meeting, which is scheduled for March 15th.
