Pieced Butterfly Quilt – Block 2

I’m still working on the zebra block. As a break from all that satin stitching, I decided to stitch another pieced butterfly — this time in pink. It’s really fun to select the little fabric swatch prints for these butterflies.

The original pattern had 3 small curved pieces on the wing. In order to fit the template to my vintage fabric samples, I changed the pattern so there are 4 of these pieces on each wing. My finished block is 9″ x 9″.

Update:  The complete original pattern (with instructions) and more block photos are available on a later post here. Click here for a scaled drawing of my adapted pattern.
