Butterflies Moths and Comfort Quilts

The beautiful butterfly fabric and the rainbow of colors are from my stash.
A fellow quilter used the butterfly fabric for the mystery quilt I made for GS's baby quilt. I immediately went out and purchased some yardage . Oh....about 5 years ago LOL.
Time to start.A day at quilting and lots of cutting 31/2 meters of butterflies.
Now the next step Brights also from the stash. I ask you do I have too too much fabric?

Unexpected visitors on our front step this morning.
C.S.I.R.O. seems to think they live in southern Queensland.
The floods have displaced the animal population as well as humans.

Jan of Oz Comfort Quilts (see button) has found transport for completed quilts to the Towoomba area for distribution by people helping with the clean up.
Here are some more blocks ready for stitching. I will send this lot in a parcel post envelope as soon as finished. It's a reasonable way to post within Australia . Other ways to help include cutting 21 2&1/2" strips for the binding. All the small jobs add up to finished quilts. My hedge gave comfort to the moths today some quilts will comfort other Queenslanders soon.
Dear friends enjoy your week ahead. Terry

magnificent moths, i think they are hawk moths, what do you think?
you have nice bright fabrics there, i got some bright strips today also, from Dee, so will make them up tomorrow.
i worked out that 21 strips of 2 and a half ins wide equals about 1 and a half metres of 110cm fabric. i worked it out finally by cutting them all! you have a lovely week ahead also, k.
