    The mother of all butterfly blocks for Annmarie!!! Tried to make it look like a monarch butterfly. Colors are brighter than picture. We tried to darken it and that helped a little.

    Have done the butterfly block twice now...1st time..the points on the triangles were too close to the edge.. 2nd time..the whole darn block is 1/8" too big!!! :cry: :cry: :cry:

    Hmmmm...maybe I should just applique a butterfly on a 12 1/2" block :roll:

    Ladies
    Annmarie's butterfly blocks have no size she wants them to be varoius sizes. Do not worry about that. We are all okay with 6in, 9in, and so on!!!

    salsaquilter, your block is wonderful and I'm sure it would be a challenge for me although it looks like you have "tamed the beast". This thread though is for a block SWAP that several of us have signed up for. Hopefully you can join us next time ...your work is beautiful and I would love to swap blocks with you!

    Once again salsaquilter your work is amazing. Is there any particular reason you choose to hand piece it? From what you have done, I can see just how lovely it will be!

    All of the blocks are really great! So much really fabulous work.
    I feel like I am behind as all I've had time to do so far is print out the patterns!!! I am finishing up a quilt for my MIL & want it finished by the fourth of July because my BIL is coming for a visit then & can deliver it to my MIL when he goes home. Then I will get started on my blocks. I am really anxious to get started!

    I have a question for Annmarie:

    You're number 7 on our list and this is what it says:

    7. Annmarie
    Block: Butterfly Blocks/ Any pattern and size
    Colors: Any color choice
    ** You may paperpiece, appliqué, embroidery, or piece
    My question is, can I give you an embellished, crazy patch embroidered butterfly block? I have about fifteen of them already made up that I never got around to using in a previous project.

    If I recall correctly, it's a twelve inch block. I could put a border on it that would even it out to 12.5".

    Cordelia you can give Anmarie any size block and whatever you have. She wants to make a quilt with all kinds of butterflies.

    Oh, it does say any pattern and size. I totally glossed over that. I had in my head it was 12.5".

    That's easy then.
