The fourth block to be added to my AQB2 quilt comes from Chen. It's a butterfly made out of butterflies, hence the "meta" in my title. She used her own ricrac as the butterfly's antenna:
I'm even more in love with these colours, now that I'm seeing them arranged in so many different combinations. Not only do I like each individual block, but I'm also delighted in the variety of it all. I sent everyone the same fabrics but they all come out so differently. I think there are two different virtual quilting bee schools that have emerged: some participants have very clear instructions and want a specific style of block with only the fabric they've included, and then there's the other school that gives less guidance (or..... none, in my case). I don't know what others prefer to make; sometimes I like to have a brainless block (see previous June blocks post) but sometimes inspiration strikes.
