    Make a Butterfly Blossom Quilt with Jenny! New tutorial!

    Enjoy !

    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    I find that to be cleaver. LOL. I had to pay attention to see the block on the wall...

    Very cute. I love applique too. I may add this to my list. I am making up some lap quilts to give to the women in our family for Christmas.

      Nope, not for me ... don't like the extra step of ironing the edges under.

      Couldn't I just use the template to cut out from the white charms and then sew those leftover side pieces (the "wings" if you will) onto the printed piece that I cut out with the template?

      If so, the bonus would be enough fabric for TWO quilts: one with printed charms flanked by background color (e.g., white) and one with white charms flanked by printed background color.

        I am not sure... but you could do raw edge applique and not do the turn down.

          Sorry I am with DramaMama on this on. Piecing would be much easier and faster than folding edges under and than blanket stitching.and use much less fabric. It sure is a pretty design though. Love that fabric line.

            I really like this idea, why don't you give it a try? Let us know how it turns out. The quilt is cute.

              I enjoy applique and this is such a cute quilt. I think I might give this one a try...

                For a more homespun look, couldn't you just sew the piece on to the background leaving the raw edges out? Then when washed, it would fray slightly. If done with the right fabric, it would be pretty interesting.

                  Your block would end up smaller because of the seam allowance of the background but I think it should work. [I think}

                    I like the look of this one, I think I might give it a try with raw edge applique and use the mini charms with mini template and turn out a table topper. I found some mini Christmas themed charms hiding in my stash yesterday.

                    Procrastinate. It frees up time to quilt!

                        You could do it like the orange peel. Sew on fusable and turn it inside out.

                          Super pretty, probably would not try it.

                              That looks a little fussy for me but the fabric she used is gorgeous
