Thank you all for helping me welcome Louis into the world! I can’t wait to smell that baby smell and kiss those baby toes!
Today–by popular request–we have The Butterfly Machine Quilting Tutorial.
(A note about requests-I try to create tutorials that YOU ask for…sometimes the design pops right onto my sketchbook, for other designs, it takes a long time to get it right. I’m currently working on a Train…but it’s not ready for prime time. Please be patient. If you have a request, let me know, I will try!)
I have two banners today–couldn’t decide which one I like better–what do YOU think? Please use one of these photos to pin to Pinterest–it really helps get the word out!
THE BUTTERFLY – FREE MOTION QUILT TUTORIAL
Begin by drawing a square. Begin stitching a skinny oval in the center of the square.Stitch two curly antennae–On the left side, stitch a large petal shaped wing. Before reaching the oval, stitch a counter clockwise loop.Stitch a smaller lower wing, stitching near the side of the oval.Stitch under the oval, closely echo stitching to the top of the oval on the right side.Stitch a large right wing.Stitch a loop and a smaller, lower wing.
Add a loop-de-loop to travel to the next Butterfly in the row.
This would be adorable on any little girl’s quilt, or add a single Butterfly in with a group of flowers. The Butterfly is like a basic recipe–change the proportions and shapes to create YOUR own version!
