Finished size 75" X 98"
This quilt was such a great stash buster. I named mine Butterflies Are Free because the only fabric I purchased was the Kona black for the background.
Everything else came from my stash.

The original inspiration came from the Butterfly Block Tutorial by Amy of Mrs. Schmenkman
These 6" blocks really grabbed the eyes of so many quilters, and can be seen in various color ways all around blogland.
I decided to make my binding scrappy, to follow the theme of the inside of the quilt.
If we see butterflies, it can feel like spring (at least indoors).
I will be teaching Butterflies Are Free at Quilted Works after the first of the year.
Grab your scraps and come join me!
