After working on the Celtic Knot, I needed something fast and fun. This little butterfly panel was just what I needed.
I read about other quilters who don't know what to quilt, so they just start quilting. What??? That is so not me. I want a plan, a guide, and rules. That is a problem for me many times. I need to learn to relax with my quilting, trust myself and my ideas. So, that is what I did with this little panel. I had no plan. I just started, and my other goal was to use one thread color, and minimize my starts and stops. I had so much fun. So, if you see a cute panel, and wand a no rules quilting experience, I say go for it.
I followed the print on the panel as my main guide, and just let it go from there. There are a few areas that I am not totally pleased with, but overall it is just what I needed and by relaxing with this little panel, I learned a lot. I love machine quilting all the time, but when I can relax and not worry about every stitch I have much more fun. Thanks for reading, and have fun with whatever you are working on.
