Cookie Cutter BOM: The Butterfly

Here we have block #2, the Butterfly. This is a bit more complicated in cutting out with all the ins and outs of the curves. Here's one of several quilts made and published. This was made using Anna Griffin fabrics and appeared in Quilt Magazine, 2006. The quilt pattern as shown is available in my Etsy shop!
Romantic Butterflies. 2006
As I shared last month with the Heart Block, you trace a LEFT side and a RIGHT side using the template. I use freezer paper as my template material. Here I show some red fabric (peeking out from under the freezer paper) that will be stitched to the black batik rectangle on the left.

The little cutaway can be used as another design element; don't throw it away!

Here is another quilt made using 5 butterflies and four plain alternating squares. It's somewhat dark, but I think you get the idea.

Now, back to my batik Butterfly block:

Remember, you can start at the beginning with the Heart block and also add the Dreidel block.

Here is the Sampler quilt again:

Remember, the Butterfly Block is free for the month of August only. After that, it moves to my Etsy shop. Please don't photocopy or share the pdf in any way with others. Just share the link!
