Butterfly at the Crossroads ~ Block 14

Butterfly at the Crossroads ... doesn't that conjure up a delightful mind picture?  This block has taken longer than anticipated, mainly because I completed my Gum Leaf quilt leaving me a clear conscience thus allowing me to progress uninhibited with The Farmer's Wife Sampler quilt.

I chose delicate colours for Block 14; butterflies fluttering at the crossroads, or anywhere, are delicate by nature!  In my mind's eye I see attention being drawn to this block, simply because of its colours. 

As I make each block I recite to myself the numbers and names and wonder if at the end of 'the making' I can actually remember them all!  I think that this little mental exercise must be good for my grey matter.

Definitely a great fabric choice. Very soft and feminine.
