Make a Butterfly Baby Quilt from Scraps |
Easily Make This Larger for a Throw or Bed Quilt!
Richly colored batik scraps are so lovely in this quilt. The appliqued butterflies, also in batiks, add a charming touch.
This is a super easy quilt to make, even for beginners. Nine-patch blocks and fusible applique are easy, quick and yield lovely results.
Go through your stash and pull out batiks and mottled prints. Or, take the quilt in a different direction and choose small-scale prints for an equally charming look.
Another option is to choose a coordinated color scheme. We can imagine the quilt in slight variations of one or two predominant colors. Or, select 5″ charm squares from a beautiful fabric line for another kind of coordinated look.
The pattern, from Freemotion by the River, is for a 30″ x 42″ quilt. That’s perfect for a baby or lap quilt. Add more blocks for a throw or bed quilt.
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!
