Butterflies and Ice!

 We've had snow all week but Saturday morning we woke up to everything being covered in solid ice!  I did not touch up these photos, everything really is white, including the sky!
 I have been busy making butterflies from Lori Holt's book Quilty Fun.

 Last year for the Sew Sweet Bee I asked for baskets when it was my turn, I am going to ask for more baskets this year because I want to make one more king size quilt for my bed.  I am going to use the butterflies as a border around the baskets.
 I had a lot of half square triangles left over from this month's block and I made them into five inch pinwheels.  These are going to be used as a second border on that quilt too!
 So far I have 28 butterflies and eight pinwheels made.  I have a lot more to go for a king size quilt!
I've brought a little spring into my house!

I got Quilty Fun for my birthday in June so I hope to start making some blocks, maybe not a quilt but use them in runners or place mats. I love the butterflies!!
