Let’s Bee Social #46

Posted on: November 12th, 2014 by Lorna McMahon

Welcome to another Wednesday…. And another new project!  The Butterfly Quilt!

Three weeks ago, I shared pictures of my Little Blooms blocks in this post.
And this Friday I will be sharing the finish post for the Little Blooms quilt.

Some of my readers mentioned how much those blocks reminded them of butterflies.
My readers are so smart and very inspiring!

These Butterfly blocks measure 10″ x 7.5″ finished size.

And are perfect for using up scraps….

But even though I am only half way finished the number of blocks
required to make the quilt I have planned…

I am already eager to start on another Butterfly Quilt using only solids!
Or maybe using a single fabric collection…..

You can find the Pretty Butterfly quilt pattern listed here in my shop.

NOW…. What’s new with you?

If you are not sure what Let’s Bee Social is all about, you can read the details here.

Keep On Quilting On!
