A Beautiful Quilt for Spring, Summer and All Year Around!
Many butterfly quilts we see are appliqued or intricately paper pieced. This beauty is all straight piecing. There aren’t even any triangles to deal with, making this quilt easy enough for beginning quilters.

This is also a wonderful scrap buster. Pull out scraps with a vintage look and produce your own heirloom quality quilt.
Or, choose coordinating fabrics, batiks, 1930’s reproduction fabrics … Whatever fabrics strike your fancy are sure to produce a stunning quilt.
The finished quilt by designer Elena McDowell measures 72″ square. You can easily adjust the size by adding or deleting rows of butterfly blocks. This would make a darling baby quilt in a smaller size.
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!
