What materials did you use? Scraps and stash

Thomashaus on

What are you most proud of? The fact that I did this at all!! We began unloading our home of 23 years of raising children, getting ready for an Estate Sale, storing what we DID intend to keep, downsizing to a condo being newly constructed out of town, moving 3 times before July, plus more with familial challenges, my dad getting sick, in the hospital then out again, a daughter having nasty issues with ex that affected the 2 unbelievable year. Despite it all, I'd do my blocks when I could. Since we were in flux, I swore to only use fabrics already on hand. It wasn't until I began staging the blocks did I notice that the background fabric was white on white with butterflies, hence Metamorphysis. I just love the result.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just be patient with yourself, take your time and then just do it!

Your quilt is beautiful. I have the white on white butterfly material. It is so pretty.

The back is also completed. I've picked out the material for the binding as well. Now I'm working through Leah Day's

...FMQ class here on Craftsy. Once I've done the dry run of her tutorials, I plan on slowly quilting it myself.
