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.

Sunshine Butterflies. 6" block. 28" x 37" quilt

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:

Sunshine Butterflies: 47-1/2" x 47-1/2"

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!

  2. Love the butterfly fabric. I have made butterflies from handkerchiefs. I intended to do a quilt but other things got in way.
    Stay safe.
