The HEXIE BOM: May!

A Butterfly!



I don't know about you, but I've been seeing a LOT of butterflies in my yard lately - a sure sign of Spring! What colors will your butterfly be?


What's that little hexie on top? I wanted to add antennae to my butterfly! So I searched through my stash looking for something that would work.  I decided to play a bit and use some thermometers from a piece of conversation fabric - haha! I had to do a bit of piecing to get two in the same hexie. I picked a fabric that has a white background so it will blend in with my big background square.

You may choose to leave this hexie off. You might want to embroider antennae. Or forget about antennae all together! Anything goes!



HAVE FUN!!!
