Once your butterfly is complete, add the block to a quilt or another project.
You’ll find instructions and a template for making hexies in our “Quilted Hexie Hot Pads” article. Change the size of the hexies by printing the template at the size you prefer instead of at 100%.
Pattie Dix made her butterfly 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!
