Butterfly Blocks

Yesterday, I posted about getting my scraps together and cut for my butterfly blocks that will be included in the Column Quilt that I am making as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Well, the blocks are all made and I think they look pretty cute!

using a cardboard template to mark the corners
I just finished working on the bonus hsts that were created by double sewing the stitch and flip corners that were used in making the butterfly wings.

Even though I took the time to carefully measure and mark the corners to create my bonus hsts, I still needed to do a bit of sliver trimming.

Definitely worth the effort! I now have a little pile of these 2" bonus hsts that are perfectly sized to finish at 1.5".

Love your very happy butterfly quilt. What a cute block to sew. Those bonus blocks will come in handy for sure. I just love anything that can eat up the scraps.
