The Butterfly Quilt here is an entirely new quilt that you will wantits so dainty, different and altogether stunning. Twenty-one butterflies in prints and plain colors of yellow, pink and blue are all in one delightful, rainbow-hued scheme. Or, you may use scraps of your own prints for top wings and plain cloth for lower wings; all different would surely make a quite permissible plan for butterflies.
The butterflies are so simplified as to be quite easy to piece. Antennae or feelers are a black chain stitch and an outlining of black is suggested in the instruction sheet which accompanies each order.
Ruby Short McKim [circa 1927]
The Butterfly Quilt was offered in the original McKim Studios' Designs Worth Doing Catalogs and 101 Patchwork Patterns long before the invention of rotary cutting tools. McKim Studios Revival has reproduced this pattern with new instructions for todays quilter.
The original blocks finished 12" square. Cutting charts for 3 block sizes along with construction and finishing instructions are provided for Queen, Crib and Wall/Table Topper options. The 21st century version would be fabulous in batiks, 30s prints or other fabrics of your choice.
