Butterfly Charm Block Week 7

Only 2 butterflies left to go after this week, and I can't tell you how excited I am to put this all together!!!

We had a busy week at our house this past week. My brother came into town and stayed the weekend. We went and saw Christmas lights at the Madison Zoo and stopped to see the state capital. It was my first time at the capital so it was pretty neat to see the inside of it. With all the cleaning and decorating and visiting going on I ended up cranking this weeks butterfly out Sunday night after dinner. Talk about waiting till the last minute........

For those of you that are just tuning in My best Friend Crystal from Crystalized Designs and I have been doing a butterfly charm block sew along. We are using the Butterfly Charm Block  Paper Piece Pattern by Lillyella stitchery.

If you have never done paper piecing before I honestly suggest just trying it out. We have had so much fun with this and it really is so easy!! I had never done paper piecing before we did this project but I checked out a 
 tutorial by Connecting Threads.  After I watched this a few times it has been super easy ever since!!!!

For this weeks Butterfly  I used the  Lucy's Crab Shack Charm Pack from Moda Fabrics again. I think the little touches of other colors in there help tie it together with the other butterflies, since the other ones are so much brighter. 

If you’re joining in on the sewing fun, I’d love to see! Feel free to post pictures on or tag me on any social media site!
Have a wonderful day!!!!

As I sit here and dust off the cobwebs to my tiny ghost town of a blog, I am excited to make a fresh start and slowly get back to what...
