Name: Modern Butterfly
Size: 48" x 60"
Pattern: Modern Butterfly Quilt
Materials: Assorted prints in navy, wintergreen, fuschia, mustard and grey
Quilting: Crosshatch with Aurifil #2021 Natural White
It all started with a stack of fabrics in a variety of prints in navy, wintergreen, fuschia, mustard and grey. I loved this collection of saturated colors and I thought it would be fun to set them against an off-white solid for a bold quilt with a lot of contrast.
These butterfly blocks fit that mood perfectly with their crisp lines and colorful wings. My favorite part was really mixing up the colors for each butterfly. Their two-tone wings really let all the different color combinations shine.
After sharing photos of the blocks, I received several requests for the pattern. It didn't exist yet, except in my head. So I set to work getting it written down so you can make your own beautiful butterflies! I'm excited to tell you that it's finally finished. It's a full color pattern that includes fabric requirements, cutting list, paper piecing diagrams, full size printable foundation for paper piecing and coloring page to customize your own design.
A very special shout out to Barbara, Holly, Rene' and Jayne. Thank you so much for all of your kind words and support!
