Kaleidoscope of Butterflies + Oopsy-daisy

Did you know that multiples of butterflies are called by numerous names? Some of those include swarm, rabble and my favorites a flight or a kaleidoscope of butterflies. So for my work in progress, the butterfly baby quilt, the name has been decided… “Kaleidoscope of Butterflies”.

I have definitely made progress this week on the butterflies and almost have 3 finished. The large 10″ teal and pink butterfly, I am very happy with….even snuck in there some Botanics (a favorite line).

The 8″ Orange and Pink Butterfly is almost there and sneaking in some Safari Moon fabric (another favorite line).

Here is an overview of all three…….and I decided I am adding 1 more 5″ butterfly to balance the Orange and Pinks.

Don’t forget to check out last week’s post for the Juliet’s butterfly paper-piecing patterns.

Now, to my oopsy-daisy. Remember my sewing room additions for Ikea storage shelves, seen here:

Well, the other night I heard a huge crash…thinking it was the boys (the hubby and son) I rushed outside…but everything was fine. I was confused as I could not find the reason behind the crash. Well, later that night I found this and lots of broken glass:

That resulted in a complete reorganization of my space. This is how my room looked originally:

This is now my new space…the bookcase, project table (fabric storage) + sewing room:

….and the holes are temporarily fixed with a design wall:
