I adore butterflies. A friend's sister embroidered one panel for me that I made into a quilt, but am always looking to piece another one. Do not want to paper piece them. I would love to make one large one. I found this free pattern and have made 20 of these. I think they capture the variety of butterflies. Here are six of them.
Half of me wants to sew them in columns and rows and let the butterflies be. The other half wants to put them in a design that shows movement, but I don't know if that will fight with the colors and textures in the butterflies.
I have to put all of them on the wall and try it out, but the floral 4 pattern black diamonds is up there waiting for borders.
