Pattern Description:

This adorable baby quilt pattern can easily be made from leftover jelly roll strips or other scrappy strips you have in your fabric stash. Easy to follow directions will lead you through the process of making butterfly squares that finish at 5" x 5".

There are alternate sizing fabric requirements located in the pattern, as well as step-by-step directions and a coloring diagram. I have made several of these baby quilt tops and one can easily be made in a weekend!

You will be the hit of the baby shower when you show up with this adorable quilt....however, the blocks are also wonderful for toddler play mat, picnic quilt or even a little girl's twin sized bed quilt. Personally, I used the block to make a few placemats for a quilt retreat and they were a big hit!

You will definitely enjoy the versatility of this quilt block/pattern for years to come. Happy Quilting!
