Coming Super Bowl Sunday – Just Butterflies.
Will you be rooting on your favorite team that day or sewing or both? I have to confess, I am not a football fan (even tho that “local” Wisconsin team will be playing) – I know – oh the horror of not being a football fan! So my day will be spent sewing.
This is a very beginner friendly design – if you know how to make half square triangles you can master this easily. Or if you’re engrossed in watching the game, simple instructions will make it easy to stitch while cheering on your team. It reminds me of stained glass windows where those block corners and sashing come together. It could also be a great stashbuster/scrappy quilt making each butterfly from a different fabric. So check back here to get the instructions on Super Bowl Sunday!
It measures 44.5 x 56 – a good toddler /crib size or wallhanging but you could easily make more blocks and sashing to expand it to the size you want.
And now for an unadultered plug… if you like those fabrics (the border fabric is my absolute favorite) watch for them in your local quilt shop. You can see another design I did called”Just Flutterin” at www.hoffmanfabrics.com on their free pattern download page which was designed specifically for this fabric line which is called “All a Flutter.” 🙂
