This purple fabric is too pretty to cover with embellishments, only one charm is added.
Actually it isn't blue as in the picture.
At the back of the butterfly was a nice ring meant to attach it, only it was too big.
I thought I could bend it with a pliers. Yes, the ring bent and broke.
What to do? I cut a piece of plastic, made little holes with a needle, pulled thread through the holes, glued the plastic on the back of the butterfly and fastened the threads on the block.
I am not sure yet if this will do as the butterfly wiggles.
Here she is.
This part of the block was part of TAST week 39: knotted buttonhole stitch.
It was described here.
The finished June block of CQJP 2012
The top half of the crazy violets quilt. Of course the new seams will get a proper treatment.
