Butterfly block for a Quilt show contest

Project Description

What are you most proud of? This was not easy to make and I was happy to have finished it in time for the judging. I did not win. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I don't know if I would advise paper piecing. It is very hard and not really worth the effort. To me it was easier to crochet my pet spider.

What you will need

  • Gold and black fairy frost
  • Asian fabric
  • make a butterfly paper pattern
  • quilting tools. Block was entered in a 2007 contest in WA quilter's guild.

Q&A with linpiration

Ladymax asked:
I would have voted for you to win. This is marvelous.
linpiration answered:
Oh wow, wish you had been the judge but you should have seen the other ones. Made me blush they were so good. Oh well.....I tried!
