One More Butterfly Quilt
Meadow Whispers is a collection from several years ago. It has BUTTERFLIES on several skus. I used a simple block design from my Colorburst Squares workshop which has 3 variations of the Cobblestone block. I shared these a few years ago. I had some leftover fabrics and so . . .

Here is the fabric collection with those lovely butterflies on the left (3 colors). I was working with fat quarters only.
I sewed until I exhausted myself (ha ha - I'm joking, of course). My method for making these is to stack 10-1/2" squares and cut them in pairs according to which one of the blocks I'm aiming for. My Colorburst Squares pattern simplifies it even further. Here are the 3 different blocks. Block 1 is the standard Cobblestone.

For the first quilt, I used the 3 different blocks in my Colorburst Squares pattern.
I made a total of 30 blocks - but I didn't use up all those fat quarters. I tried, honest! I put them together and had my guild friend quilt this and it was donated to one of our charitable ventures here in Herndon, Virginia. No border - just binding.

Here is the second quilt I made using those leftovers. It is 48" x 48" and will also be donated to my local quilt guild. The blocks are all the same. It is just so beautiful and I know someone will be delighting in the beautiful colors and butterfly images!
