There’s So Much You Can Do With Your Butterfly Block!

Simply stitch three different colors of hexies into a butterfly shape for a cute block to use however you choose. The hexie butterfly shape is hand stitched to the backing fabric, then antennae are embroidered to add the finishing detail.

Once your butterfly is complete, add the block to a quilt or another project.

Pattie Dix made hers into a wall piece with an embroidery hoop frame for her BFF’s birthday.

If you’re feeling ambitious and love making hexies, you might be inspired to put the butterflies into a quilt with hexie flowers. The following mini hexies by DKC22 are 1/4″ on a side!

A hexie butterfly would be lovely on a tote bag, centered in a wall hanging with pieced borders, or in a picture frame. You’re only limited by your imagination!
