A Rabble of Butterflies and Texas Tears

Butterflies bumping into each other on the quilt.
The collective noun is rabble. 39 blocks.... half the quilt completed. They are definitely a rabble of butterflies.

The four patch blocks are different so even more a riot of color. So bright it makes me smile. Maybe even do a happy dance.
A singular visitor in the garden. Beautiful St. Andrews Cross spider. A member of the weaver family.


Texas Tears is the third block I've completed for my my Civil War Quilt catch up.
I'm making progress.
Happy Weekend to you all Terry

Butterflies always seem to be too delicate to be a rabble, lol. Looks like you've made good progress with them

So many bright colours in your butterfly quilt! The spider is posing for your Texas tears block, isn't she?

Terry, your Texas Tears looks great. Very nice with the subtle colours.

And in stark contrast (vibrancy-wise) your riot of butterflies is really fun.

Enjoy your weekend. Sue.
