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.

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%.

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!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
