Butterflies flying away


 Today's Finish is Tanya's newest quilt. The 9 butterflies on the white background was created using her Brother Embroidery Machine.  It is a entry level machine, almost the cheapest we could find but it creates some cute designs.  The butterflies came on the machine, we have yet to figure out how to get more designs.


Tanya created the pattern for this quilt.  You can see below that it alternates the pink and purple blocks as it explodes outwards.  Tanya echo quilted this on both sides of the seams.


Our son James took the pictures for today's as you can see the only closeup shots are the center of the quilt. We were not hiding any thing by not showing  any where else (except in the full quilt shot), but he seems to like to center things).


While Tanya embroidered these butterfly's me and the kids were just amazed watching the machine spit them out.  In a previous post I talked about the only fatality was one butterfly lost its life while the machine was clunking away at it the thread got stuck and the machine did not stop and it ripped a hole in the material and broke a needle.  It is amazing how fast it can go from great to disaster.


One thing I always love when my son takes the camera to take pictures is the pretty things that he finds and shoots along the way.  This is one of my wife's flower in the front yard.


The dandelion is one of Julia's favorite flowers to pick.


Last we have one of the leaves on one of our bushes in the front yard.  It is cool how something up close can be so interesting.

Richard, I think that is a machine that you have to connect to a computer to add files. If I recall it is a Brother. Send me a model and I will do some research. What ty[e of designs are you looking for? I have started digitizing some.

Love the quilt! Time for a visit to the place where you bought it for a class in how to import more designs? James is a good photographer. Love the tulp, I have some that are a deep fuschia and white like that one, just different color, and it is amazing when they bloom. I had 5 blooms in a little circle this year! I'm with Julia on the dandelions - love having them everywhere! They make good tea, and great infusion for washing the face or putting in lotion.
