What materials did you use? 100% cotton fabrics

What are you most proud of? I couched yarn with a zigzag stitch to make the butterfly bodies. It took me a while to get the tension just right, but once I did, the work went fast.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun with these blocks. I came up with several possibilities (including a dog and a rather odd looking bird) before I settled on butterflies. Play with your hexagons!

Thanks. I'm thinking about making more of these for another quilt and alternating them with hexagon flower blocks

I always thought of Hexagons as being so old fashioned. This is very creative and brings to mind lots of possibilites. Thanks!
