Last year I told you about my "Autumn Butterflies" quilt that I started.
to read all about it.
While at retreat ... I was able to get a little bit more time to work on it after I finished my Sew Cherry Swoon quilt.
This quilt is the perfect project to use as many different fabrics as you can...for alot of variety.
I have chosen fun prints from my stash
that I that I thought would make a great butterfly and would contrast nicely with
my brown solid background.
I'm making 100 butterflies for my quilt and I am about halfway there...
I have started joining them into rows of
2 x 10 butterflies.
As you can see, these are wonky butterflies and are fun to do!
I cut the wings 3 1/8" x 6 1/2"....
and added my brown background pieces
(cut 2 1/2" x 4 1/2")
to each side of the wing on an angle.
I trimmed them up and sewed the wings to my brown gingham butterfly body.
(cut 1 1/2" x 6 1/2")

I did if you want to make your own!
