Started to make the heart of the block first.  The 81/2" square is perfect for this butterfly print.  If I were to cut it any smaller, I might not be able to see the butterflies!!  For the frame, I used a cream fabric with some bits of brown.   The cut for the cream fabric is 11/2" x 42".

I saw this pattern in one of the quilting magazines.  I can't remember the name of the pattern but I know they used the fabrics from Begining's floragraphix.  The center of the block is quite large 81/2" x 81/2".  I have this butterfly print in my stash and I thought it will be nice to use it for the center.  The butterflies are quite large and it does look good when cut into 81/2" squares.  I chose my favourite colors...YELLOW, orange, brown and green to compliment the butterfly print!!!

Wow!  Time just went by like a flash!!  And this is how far I got on with my applique project!!  Not a lot but it will do!!  I was away for five days and as this a big piece I couldn't bring it with me to applique.  It does take quite a lot of time to do especially the yellow round flowers on the top right!  LOL
