Old Fashioned Butterfly - Page 3

Now piece the block. Pin the two uneven halves together, right sides together, from the bottom to the pivot point where all the wings come together. Sew from the bottom to that pivot point, then , with the needle still down, turn fabric and continue to sew the remainder of the block seam!

Then, using 3 strands of embroidery floss...blanket stitch around the edges of the butterfly!

This makes a very old looking quilt...the fabric I used here were repro 30's stuff...BUT...wouldn't it be a neat children's quilt, done in varying pastels, or brights on black??....another one to have fun with!!

Happy Quilting!!
