Flutterby butterfly

Here is a quick update of last weeks miniblock - the one with the stitchery butterflies, these blocks are pretty quick, so I've also done this weeks easy-peasy one, no stitchery or applique on it - now I have to get on with some dreaded needleturn - I hope it goes OK, it's not my best skill yet - probably never will be, but I will try!
This is the pattern of Block One, you can check out the original quilt here.  There are 9 blocks this size, in a  3 x 3 layout, a total of 81 miniblocks in all.  So I have 4 miniblocks done, only 77 to go!

Thanks for looking, bye for now,  Nicky

Its looking beautiful Nicky. Are you going to needle turn like we were shown at the workshop. I am slowly getting to grips with it and enjoying it.

Very Pretty! I started this about 18months ago and am working on block 4. I was making great progress till I joined the Stitch-A-Long for Gardeners Journal! Looking forward to watching your progress.

That's such a gorgeous piece. I've never tried the needle turn thing. Looking forward to seeing how it goes for you.
