Beautiful Paper-Pieced Butterfly Blocks!! (FREE Quilting Pattern)

Imagine a quilt made up of these three distinct, unique, and very beautiful butterfly charm blocks! Add some springtime to your winter with a gorgeous quilt constructed up of these!

Be warned, however, for those of you (and there are many of us) who prefer quilting projects that don’t require paper piecing, this is a paper-piecing quilting project.

The free pattern for this project includes printable appliques and step-by-step instructions for piecing the different components together.

Each block, when complete, measures 4.5 inches.

Although there is a myriad of different color options you could consider for this one, I definitely love the idea of throwing together a bunch of very brightly colored fabrics!

The Coolest Rag Quilt Ever!! (FREE Quilting Pattern)

You can make this one as huge or as small as you wish…no matter what size you end up with, it would be just plain all-around GORGEOUS! Additionally, no matter what theme you choose to use, be it Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or even a special birthday theme for someone’s birthday, it is sure to be a big hit with the lucky recipient!

It is recommended that you first consider woven cotton and flannel for this quilt. The main reason for this is that these two types of fabric do well with the needed fraying that is required as part of this pattern. Minky, for example, is not recommended, as you won’t get the fraying needed. When the instructions are followed for the pattern, you will end up with a quilt that measures 54 inches x 60 inches.

There is a link to a yardage calculator included with the pattern, so once you have figured out what size quilt you want to end up with, the yardage calculator will help you easily identify the amount of fabric you will need.

If you have some experience quilting, this same method works great for making tote bags, pillows, and probably many other items that I haven’t listed. I hope you enjoy this one!

This is also a very, very quick pattern to complete, and the finished quilt measures approximately 48 inches x 67 inches.

For this quilt, you will need a Junior Jelly Roll in 3 different colors or 3 different varying shades (light, medium, and dark) of the same color, and 3-1/2 yards of backing fabric.

The finished quilt would be a wonderful gift for pretty much anyone, although this particular pattern would result in a great quilt for even a man, as the stripes truly do make it quite a manly quilt!
