Butterflies are free ... and so am I
I was over half way through making the 120 framed nine patch blocks needed to make my own version of Lynne Dykstra's (Klein Meisje Quilts) gorgeous quilt (see my blog here) when I got sidetracked by this butterfly block tutorial by Mrs Schmenkman Quilts. The blog isn't kept up-to-date any more, but please go to it to discover how the block originated. This tutorial was written in 2010 when it seems the block was very popular.
Anyhoo, I became obsessed with making my own and, using any scrap I could find, I started making what has turned out to be one of my favourite quilts.
