Since I had already designed “Lovely Butterfly,” an appliquéed butterfly, I challenged myself to try some pieced ones. They turned out cute, I think, and really easy to piece.–Libby
This is a two-fer! Two butterfly patterns for piecing are included in this Christensen Creations Platter Pad package: a fullview silhouette and a sideview silhouette. Both are simple, made from squares and rectangles. The pattern has step-by-step instructions for piecing, suggestions for quilting, and tips on binding, including diagrams and full-size color pattern grids. Either design makes sweet butterfly quilt block in 3 sizes or a decorative butterfly hot pad, big enough for a platter or bowl.
