I would so much love to purchase this pattern...I've found several butterfly patterns but this one is the ONLY one I've loved! Any suggestions?
Pamela Boatright answered:
Here is the block pattern I drafted - not super easy, but it is pretty! http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/quilting/Other/Joans-Vintage-Butterfly-Block/8593

I sure would love to make this. You have the pattern for free but so far I have had no luck getting it. Sure wish someone would tell me how to down load it. I have written to no avail I never hear from anyone.
Pamela Boatright answered:
First you have to put the pattern in your cart. Once it is in your cart, you have to add it to your library. Once you have done that you click the link to go toyour pattern library. When you get there you will see the pictures of the patterns you have and can click "download pdf" to get the pattern. I think a lot of people are getting confused with the process! Hope this helps!

Thank you ever so much. This is a beautiful pattern, and a good scrap killer!
Pamela Boatright answered:
Thanks - I really love scrappy quilts!

I would love to have the instructions for this beautiful quilt.
Pamela Boatright answered:
The quilt just requires 90 butterfly blocks. They are sewn together in rows with no sashings or borders. (Though making 90 of those blocks is overwhelming to me!)
