Cream/White CQ Revisited

Block 3 Button Flowers, originally uploaded by ivoryblushroses.
I brought my Cream & White crazy quilt to work on for this trip to Colorado. Looking back, I see that is a work in slow progress as I started it back in 2007! Motivation and creative ideas for it seem to come in spurts. Each of the 4 blocks have certain items in common, such as a group of button flowers, a cotton printed silkie with birds and flowers, a rose trellis and a butterfly of some sort.

Block 4 Button Flowers
A trip to the antique mall resulted in a new little stash of fancy mother of pearl buttons, perfect for button flowers, so that is what I worked on first. I couldn't resist creating another bouquet of flowers using the set of tiny buttons meant for a baby dress!

Butterfly in Cream
For block 4, which seems to be coming together faster than block 3, I added a butterfly in satin stitch, inspired by one that Hideko had created.

It feels great to be working on this project again and as I see it coming toward completion, I have new motivation to focus on it and get it completed!
