Spring Fever QAL. Bats or Butterflies

What are those things? Bats?  That's what my son asked during last week's family time show and tell  They are supposed to be butterflies.  Jen Kingwell's look like butterflies. Hummmmm! My mind gears are twirling at the mention of bats!  Another quilt to make?...

Really I was thinking they looked more like turkeys but I didn't tell him that!  Gobble Gobble Gobble!
All the same.......

I Love It! Love it!  Love It!  I almost have the four half rectangle appliqué sections done.  I couldn't be happier with how it is coming together.

It is not as big as the original. I am still debating on the scallop edging.  I believe it is essential to the quilt. I guess I am trying to simplify the process.   This quilt has a story.  Every quilt has a story.  Read about it here and here.

Check out all the other quilters who are doing the JenKingwell QAL over at Lining Up My Stitches.  And check out all the projects over at Freshly Pieced this week.

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Wednesday and Happy Fall to one and all!
