FBW109 - It's a Paper Piecing Party!!

Well, not a party per se, but it is Wednesday! And, you all know what that means!! It's Flutter By time, and every time we bust out the fluttery things, it's a party! And, it's my birthday today, so there must be a party, right? Well, we had the cake last night, but that is a whole other story!


This week, we were challenged to use paper piecing on our projects. But, don't forget to include a butterfly, fairy or angel on your creation! That is the most important part!!


My Magnolias have been so neglected lately, so I knew that I had to bring out Tilda dressed in her butterfly regalia! I just love this stamp! It was a little fussy to paper piece, but I like the way she turned out! Unfortunately, my bow is a little lackluster...my fingers weren't working with the Bow Easy all that well! Grosgrain can be a little tough, but I think we can handle it. I STILL LOVE MY BOW EASY! There, I said it!


My teammates would love for you to stop by and say hi! And, we want to see your creations...just link them up HERE so that we can stop by!
