Butterfly Block

This is my butterfly block. It is applique. The head and body are trapunto. I hand stitched the head and body onto the green butterfly fabric. I used a simple chain stitch to connect the antenna tips to the head. I used the sewing machine with a zig-zag stitch to sew on the wings. I need a total of 3 butterfly blocks and I think I'm going to use a different stitch for each block. I haven't decided if I'm going to use white thread and give the butterfly a smiling face.  


  1. Very nice. I am sure it will be loved and considering what happened to the first
    one, it will be well cared for, too. 8-) Sorry to hear about the loss of the first
    butterfly quilt.

  2. This will make a sweet baby quilt! Very pretty, Cat.
