This Hexie Butterfly is So Sweet
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%.
Pattie Dix made her butterfly into a wall piece with an embroidery hoop frame for her BFF’s birthday.
Penny made hers into a table runner.

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!
I love the hexie block
Love this idea. I’m going to make some cotton totes with butterflies on and sell them.
