I love butterflies. When My husband and I were dating, I went to Boston on Business, and wanted to bring him back something. A beautiful stained glass blue butterfly for his window. He had gone to Florida at the same time and brought me back an enameled dainty blue butterfly! Oh how we laughed at the coincidence. This blocks brings back that special memory of our taking wing. Of course I'll make it in blue! Thank you!


Adorable! I made mine at 1/2 size to add to my Splendid Sampler.

Very cute! Just printed out the template and directions. Will make a cute table topper quilt.


The pattern of the butterfly block is lovely. I would put the red heart button in the center. The butterfly is divine. Too bad I can not sew now! But I'll sew the day I heal. Greetings Pat Sloan. Me encanta.

Pat Evans

Ooh, I love that collection of purple buttons.


Pat: Where did you get that lovely box of ALL the colors of Aurifil floss?

Paula S. Pike

This is adorable! I can see a future mug rug in the making.


Adorable, such fun!!!!


I love your version of the butterfly and how you used the buttons!

Janet Green

for the solstice challenge? can it be just a top I have a quilt show in April and I'm busy busy busy but would like to bust some scraps too!


I love this! Love ❤️ ❤️ ❤️!!! And thank you for pattern and bonding tips. I can bind large things but struggle with machine binding smaller pieces. ( I know ridiculous!) I will slow down and try this method!!!! Thanks again!

Janet Green

I do believe that plum is one of my favorite colors there's just enough red to make the purple delicious!

Cindy in TN

Love it, and the little bunny!
