hestia0527, Love this! I have some pieced butterfly squares that my Mother and Grandmother did. Not enough for an entire quilt so I wikll need other squares also. I love this idea and can't wait to get some 30's and 40's prints so I can do this. I don't think my butterflys are on the points though. Any suggestions?

You can mix them up or point-up your squares. I would mix them up and mount them all "on point" and put the new ones on a different color background. Butterflies flutter all different ways.

I recognize the butterfly pattern, my grandmother gave me some that were cut out and I made a crazy quilt pillow with the butterfly in the middle. My father still has it on his bed.
