The Quiltmaker's Butterfly Forest Blog Hop

Welcome to my stop on The Quiltmaker's Butterfly Forest by Felicia T. Brenoe blog hop. When asked if I wanted to participate, I really felt like there was no way I couldn't play along given the name of the book and the name of my blog...it was like karma and fate all rolled into one!

 I've enjoyed spending some time reading the delightful stories Felicia shares, and the patterns are so appealing to me in ways that may not be as obvious to others. I found myself fascinated by her use of fabric in the borders and the creative sashings that really set the blocks apart in a way that lets them shine!

And these placemats are so charming, I just may have to stitch up a few of these!
