You can make all the blocks the same or have a bevy of many colors.

In this quilt the butterflies are placed diagonally on 12 1/2” squares and are put together with alternate plan squares.

But of course you choose whatever layout you like best.

There are 63 blocks, 32 appliqued and 31 plain.

Set 7 blocks wide and 9 blocks long, this quilt will measure 84X108”

We have two suggestions for quilting the alternate plain blocks.

One is shown here, is a series of wavy line (You can see it at the top of the page you can download. 

The second is a butterfly in the quilting section of the ebook, that can be centered in the plain blocks and filled in at the corners with a small leaf or flower.

After the motif is appliqued, embroider the antennae in outline stitch, using 2 strands of embroidery floss or use a fancy stitch from your machine.

Quilt around the motif and quilt the plain blocks with the design you have selected.
