Pixel Play: Project Quilting 10.4

Oh, how I love a challenge! 
I am  not competitive in any way, but give me an idea to be creative and I'm all in!

This week's theme for Project Quilting at Persimon Dreams was Pixel Play. 

I searched the internet for a pixel image to work with and found a perler bead butterfly. 

In my stash for a very long time, I've had a baggie of 2" blocks of purple fabric. 

As I laid out the squares, I realized that this was going to be a big project! 
BIG=lots of time!

Good thing we had 3 school cancellations this past week. 
School cancellation=time to sew!

Lots and lots of chain sewing...along with always counting.

That's 529 two inch blocks total! 

I added a few 9-patch blocks to add more area and interest. 

Then came the quilting. Simple straight-line quilting down the middle of each block. 
Twist clock-wise and stich again!

Next came the binding. 

Both the backing and binding fabric are from my full-time teaching days when I covered my bulletin boards in fabric. Somebody apparently likes purple, huh?
Every piece of this project came from my stash, which makes me (and hubby) happy!

A couple of pups were happy with this quilt too!

I wish they had emails so they could each vote! 

This quilt...perfect for a baby measures 36"x 36".
Made in my home in Dubuque, Iowa.
