The quilt is essentially one block, which opens up a lot of possibilities. Add deeper borders to the sides for lovely place mats. String several together for a table runner, or even make a lap or throw quilt, perhaps with sashing and cornerstones between the blocks.
The block also lends itself to the creative use of fabric styles and color. Make it up in spring colors or match your decor. However you choose to “color” you’re butterfly you’re sure to have a lovely finished mini quilt to enjoy or to give. Your favorite butterfly lover will be thrilled to receive it!
The following photo shows a large quilt (75″ x 75″) from the same designer. The blocks are twice as large as in the mini quilt but it shows you how the mini’s blocks would look grouped together into a small quilt. You can purchase the large quilt pattern here.
The finished butterfly mini quilt is 11 1/2″ x 11 1/2″.
