Combine Several Into a Larger Quilt, or Showcase One in a Small Project.
Mix these little butterflies with charm squares for a quilt of any size. A few blocks will be lovely in a table mat or small wall hanging. Use more for a baby quilt or lap quilt.
You could even showcase one pretty block in a mug rug, candle mat, tote bag, or other small projects.
The blocks, by designer Lillyella, come in three designs and are paper pieced. If you haven’t tried that before, this is a good project to begin with. The excellent video in our article, “Foundation Paper Piecing Made Easy”, will help you get started.
Allison from Campbell Soup Diary finished one of the butterflies into a mini quilt. See another color combination and learn more here.
Dig into your scrap bag and before long you’ll have your own sweet butterflies for incorporating into a project. We especially like Lillyella’s rainbow butterflies, but they will be fun and charming in any color combo.
The blocks are 5.5″ once pieced. They can be trimmed to 5″ for combining with 5″ charm squares.
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!
