my fly girl.

here she is.
in all of her quilted and bound glory!
fly girl!
i love her so much.
quilted with straight lines 1/4" off the seam. 
i love the stars the quilting made so much!
the back is a fun bright print from momo.  love those butterflies. machine bound in momo too (the blue eggs) and rounded the corners because it looks so pretty.
when i stared quilting it i had no real direction i was just going to see where it took me... 
i thought; "i will do random straight lines all over the place".  i did one random straight line and well, it just didn't work out so 1/4"off the seam it was.  i didn't rip out that one line when i decided to go a different direction and now i like the one random straight line.  it is totally out of place and looks a little ridiculous (if you notice it) but i love it and don't have the heart to rip it out right now.  maybe next month, or not. ;) 
i am happy with it though.
and thanks to all of the wonky bee girls.  it has been such a fun bee and as i have said before, i will wonky for forever!

next up  
a few bags.
and this one for me....

  13. Nicke, this is fabulous! I love that you used grey backgrounds and the reverse - grey shoo-fly blocks. Give yourself a big pat on the back! It is wonderful :)

  14. Beautiful! That quilt is fly, girl!

    What's funny is that I can't remember which blocks are mine. They all go together so well!
