Butterflies Complete for Little Girl's Row Quilt - 04/22/2013
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-SRCNBubFq1k/UXXkHpTIvTI/AAAAAAAAAJc/yztEkwHH58E/s400/20130422_200608-1-706014.jpeg

I finished the applique butterfly row I am contributing to the row quilt my friends and I are making.  I selected the following stitches from the TAST challenge for the butterfly antennas. TAST #14 - Whipped Stem Stitch TAST # 15 - French Knots TAST #43 Whipped Magic Chain TAST #33 Pekinese Stitch TAST #9 Couching I embellished the bodies with  fancy stitches from my new machine; I used a different stitch for each butterfly.  It was fun to try to coordinate the stitch with the butterfly.  I particularly liked how the round design on the purple body mimics the circles on the fabric. I had lots of fun with this project and I'm fairly pleased with how it turned out.  I was inspired by a video of  Ira Glass  on creativity on a post over at The Unbroken Thread .  Glass encourages beginners like me to just do the work of creativity, to set goals and even deadlines.  It's a new approach, but it worked for me in this case.  It's easy to get paralyzed by having too many choices to make on a project like this, so surprisingly, having a self-imposed deadline really helped.
