The latest pattern added to the Pine Valley Quilts website is the Butterfly Runner. I so enjoyed making this easy pieced runner with fabrics designed by Blackbird designs ('Wild Flower') by Moda.
This gorgeous range of fabrics gave me the inspiration to make butterfly blocks. arranging them with sashing's to create a beautiful table runner for Spring.

Spring has arrived! In the garden the daffodils are flowering and there are lambs in the paddock. Such a beautiful time of the year, with the feel of warmer days to come.
