Something About Springtime and Butterfly's

These Butterflys have been in flight since January.
It all started with a couple of charm packs.

And then it turned into this... 
But I thought it was a little too long and narrow...
and I asked for your opinion. It was divided.
(of course it took me a couple of months to muddle this over)
I thought the columns were too wide also...
so I very very carefully cut down the center of those.

 I went ahead and made some more of these... from my stash.
I made two more rows and slipped them in between the other rows.
I wasn't going to add a border...

But then I did. I'm happy.

Oh Sinta, that turned out wonderfully! I'm so glad you listened to your inner quilt voice, you really took that quilt to the next level! That's happened to me a time or two, you get started, it doesn't look right, so it just has to sit and simmer in your head awhile. Great Job!

BTW, did you ever find your YoYoville houses? I bought that pattern in SLC., I hope to have my own little Yo Yo Town someday!
