Flutterby Blue – A Free Quilt Pattern

I’ve mentioned my sewing room clean up in previous posts. Norma, my Bearded Collie was telling me in her subtle way that I needed to get a handle on all these scraps.

Since a lot of my scraps were smaller pieces, I cut them into convenient 1.5, 2.0 and 2.5 inch squares.  After taking inventory, I had a lot of 1.5 inch squares to create something fun.

What to do?  I made a butterfly!

Wall Hanging or Table Topper…you get to choose!

I know sewing all these 1.5 inch squares together may seem overwhelming, but I have a tip in the pattern that will help keep you on track.  Before you know it, Flutterby Blue will be complete!
