Pattern Details

Continuing with my quest... here is my third design: BUTTERFLY PATH to show you how easy it can be to use ONLY stash fabrics. Will you be able to accomplish this? I think you can... Summertime... a season that usually passes by too quickly; and thus, quilters love to add their favorite elements from nature's splendor into their work. This project represents that beauty; so allow your own stash fabrics to recreate this colorful design. Bring back the remembrance of those warm and sunny days; regardless of the season; to watch the place where butterflies play. Create your own butterfly path using pieced-fabric appliques and interesting pieced blocks for the garden setting. Add bright colors to remind you of summer; and quilt it as you desire. This 11-page PDF pattern has colored illustrations, clear instructions, and full-sized templates for the applique process. Appliques are reversed, and ready to trace onto the fusible web. Use my fabric choices as your guide and have fun with this project. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Some experience using a sewing machine with quilting stitches, knowledge of fusible applique, and using rotary cutting tools. If not, you can still learn by referring to quilting books that teach these methods. From the different applique techniques, I like this one the best -- and it is the easiest to do. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Quilt size: approximately: 19" x 36"

Recommended with this pattern

  • Backing size: 21" x 38" piece (or pieced to this size)
  • Fusible web: measured in two pieces:
  • Fabric: 1/8 yd for each border color; 1/2 yd brown (or combined color choices)

Sewing began my 'adventure with fabric' in seventh grade, from making my own clothes, to now having a passion for quilting. I love the creative process and completion of each project is more important than striving for perfection. Presently, I like to blend applique with scrap quilting techniques and finishing my quilts with the quilt-as-you-go technique. After 14 years of quilting, I still haven't learned how to FMQ, but perhaps, it can till happen. When away from my sewing space, it's counted cross stitch and hand embroidery, I'll be working on. I love how creative this platform is; and still enjoy learning new things every year.
