A little butterfly quilt idea …
I fell asleep thinking about combining the Butterfly block with one from Block Lotto’s past (April 2009) and woke up (too early) still thinking about it. I gave up on falling back to sleep, first made coffee and then quickly drew this in EQ.
18 Butterfly blocks + 17 traditional Thrifty blocks + 4 inch borders = 38 by 50 inch baby quilt.
You can find directions for making the thrifty block on Sophie Junction in this post:
On my list of “someday” is the task of making printable versions of some of my favorite past Block Lotto patterns … like this one.
As soon as I uploaded the photo above … I thought maybe it would look better with sashing and cornerstones. What do you think?
With 1 inch (finished size) sashing added, the size of this little quilt becomes 44 by 58 inches. You could make the sashing 2 inches wide–with solid or Black and white 4-patch cornerstones … but I really have to stop playing now and get on with my day 😉
Both designs were constructed with only two orange fabrics, two blue fabrics and one each black and white … naturally, I believe that scrappier would be more interesting.
