“All A Flutter”

Well now I can reveal what I was working on with the calm blues and browns, as it was gifted last night – Happy Special Birthday again Maddie!

I have called it “All A Flutter” and I am very pleased with it.

I designed these butterflies a couple of years ago (very early 2008), but have only stitched them up at a much smaller scale.

I really like them this large, in quite a different palette – they look more like moths.  Amelia is very taken with them, so I will make them again for her, in colours to match her room.  As much as I love needle-turn, these were a lot quicker to make – fused and raw edge appliqued on the machine.

I have started writing up a pattern for both methods.  I still plan on using these butterflies on a doona (duvet) cover for Michaela – I may even make them bigger again.

What colours would you make them in, if you gave it a go?

  1. the butterflies (moths) are beautiful! love the design … if I made them I might go with a more traditional butterfly look, yellow, orange and black, something like that. you’ve done a wonderful job with it and whoever got it is one lucky duck!

  2. Well, I’m having a blues and browns moment, so I really like your colours as they are.
    But then I could see them in muddy reds and blues, too.
    Or tropical hot pinks and mangos. The list goes on!

    Regards, Sue
