Le Challenge-WIP

I love Butterflies!  This is just the quilt top, it is not quilted, but I hope I can still put it in the months Le Challenge, pretty please.
I ran out of the white fabric after destroying this quilt and after taking a poll with some of my blogging buddies I decided not to add a different color but to make a larger white butterfly at the top with the very last remnants of white.
Cocoon by Valorie Wells the small butterflies and ringing the large butterfly.
Alchemy by Amy Butler on the outside of the large butterfly
Alchemy is on sale right now at Craftsy along with some other Amy Butler prints at just a $1.25 a FQ, very tempted, I really loved this print and got it in a Hawthorne threads bundle.
The flower on the bottom part is from Fandango by Kate Spain and the outer border is Free Spirit Maggie.
I was also working on all of my HST's, man ironing takes a LONG, LONG, time.
got the big ones ironed, need to do the little ones.

Almost 500 HST's and if you want to make this quilt there are 2 chances to win the pattern, 1 from me and 1 from Cornelia who designed this pattern.
When she first asked me to be a pattern tester I immediately thought of arrows and crosses, Hunters hunting through a forest and the animals hiding in the safe harbor of the crosses.  It took me a long time to find the right fabric for what I was looking for,

I totally screwed up one block, but figure it would be fun to just go with it. lol 
read here I didn't want to use the seam ripper.

What do you think, to blah?

It is very hard to photograph low volume fabrics.
