After finishing the two Bear Adventures tops, I found I had quite a lot of squares and strips left over. In the spirit of not wanting to waste anything from the charity’s supplies, I cut the strips into more squares, made a big pile of four-patches and then pieced them into four bigger squares in a fairly random way.The sashing and borders are from my own stash. It reminds me a lot of a window, and the green and yellow looks like dappled forest light. Although I like this a lot, it’s not really very kid-friendly (it looks like the world’s greenest wall hanging), so I rummaged in my scrap drawer for some colourful bits and threw some butterflies at it:Much better! 😀
The butterflies were added with fusible web, but could do with a bit of zigzag or blanket stitch around them to make sure they stay put and give them a nice bit of definition. Quilt Club is tomorrow and I’m really looking forward to handing my three Linus tops to Cath so she can add them to the cause. 🙂
