Butterfly Week: Day 7
Last day with one of my first Butterfly quilts. This was made about 18 years ago and published in Quilt Magazine. This is a simple Drunkard's Path inspired block. And those fabrics are wonderful, too.

This little quilt brought some child a few smiles, I'm sure. It also gave me the idea for the next quilt, but the technique is quite different. This time I used a Curvy Log Cabin ruler (Jean Ann Wright for Creative Grids). Here's a closeup of the block:
|Three curvy 12" log cabin blocks joined with a plain square|
The logs are two different sizes (thick and thin). The "head" is a prairie point.
And here's the quilt finished:

The hard copy pattern in my Etsy shop assumes you have the Curvy Log Cabin ruler.
Here is a second quilt made by a quilt shop in Wisconsin.

I actually found another piece of butterfly print by Windham (called Wonder). Here are the butterfly prints. I only have the cream one. Aren't they lovely?
I hope you enjoyed my Butterfly Week. These quilts were so happy that you came to visit!
Hi Debby! Those log cabin butterflies are so cool. How clever, too! ~smile~ RoseanneReplyDelete
Love the butterfly fabric. I have made butterflies from handkerchiefs. I intended to do a quilt but other things got in way.ReplyDelete
