Butterflies


The butterflies are made of a bullion knot for the body, 2 heartshaped buttons for the wings, a bead for the head and straight stitches with french knots for the antennae.

The whole swarm.

  1. Hi Marjolein
    thanks for your comment on pintangle I added the button - I think you will agree it makes all the difference and I am not worried about the spray of flowers because once the block is set in the quilt it balances with blocks against it.
