“3D Butterflies Fly Free” Throw or Lap Quilt #CC2319


Scrap-happy lap quilt with pieced and appliquéed 3D butterflies.


I adore this lap quilt!  It’s because I got to play with all my collection of batiks.  I went through and pulled out the bright spring colors.  I won’t lie; it’s tedious to make all these blocks, but if you follow my directions and slip the 3D butterfly into a seam, you can easily make them really come alive.  it’s going to go in an art show this spring–cross your fingers–it’s hard for fabric art to win! –Libby                P.S. I share this pattern with a woman in India–I wonder if she’ll make it with sari fabrics–wouldn’t that be lush?

Who doesn’t love butterflies?  They appeal to every age from baby to grandparent as a symbol of beauty and freedom.  This Christensen Creation design for 3D butterflies cleverly combines piecing and appliqué.  It’s a bit challenging, but the step-by-step diagrams and photos guide  you through marking, cutting, sewing, quilting and binding.  The final product is amazing and scrap-happy, too, as it lends itself well using your stash and scraps.  Give it a whirl if you dare!
