Pattern Details

Butterfly quilts represent a simpler time and are often done in 30s fabrics. However, you can bring these happy quilts up-to date, by using more contemporary fabrics. If you love the 30s fabrics, as I do, you can stick with the tried and true, as shown, or give an updated version a try with polka dots. Either version is sure to elicit happy feelings from anyone who sees or receives your quilt. Perfect for a baby quilt or a lap quilt. You could also add more blocks and make it bed-size. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Paper piecing and basic piecing SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 42 1/2" x 42 1/2"

Recommended with this pattern

  • Fabric, batting and embroidery thread
  • Paper for printing out fondation patters

I love writing patterns and making quilts. Many of my quilts have appeared in quilting magazines: McCall Quilting, Fons and Porter Love of Quilting, Quilter's Newsletter Magazine, The Quilt Life and Quilter Magazines.. I have also designed quilts for RJR Fabric, P&B Textiles and AccuQuilt, I love making quilts, but designing is my bliss. When I'm not quilting, I enjoy soap making, knitting, walking in nature and spending time with my husband and family. You can view my website at, and my FaceBook page at
