Not content to be making only one quilt, while net surfing Tammy bought a kit for "Springfield Stars" - today she also put together her first star and was thrilled to bits.

Butterfly Garden, Block 3:
Yesterday I bought some hot pink to use for the applique hearts; still undecided about colours/fabrics to use for the butterflies and threads for some of the stitching - I'll think about that tomorrow.
I have a bit of a whinge - I bought 1 metre of the pink/white medallion print to use as the outer border on this quilt, thinking I could cut it to look like this:
Problem is the design is printed so crookedly on the material that if I cut the fabric so that the design is straight, the material will not be on the straight grain and I will need to buy more material because there isn't enough fabric if cutting it following the design, but, if I cut the material to be on the straight grain the design will be wonky. Anyway, I decided I'll buy some extra fabric, follow the design and be extra careful when the time comes to sew on the outer border.
