With green 1.5 inch scraps I made four 9 inch Beggar blocks.
I first saw this in a vintage "Butterfly" quilt on the Nostalgic Cafe blog.
I started making these last year and now have 39 blocks. I think I want 56 blocks for a large quilt with sashing between blocks. I'm trying to decide if I want a floral sashing since it is a butterfly quilt or if I just want to stick with the Kona Candy blue. Time will tell.
And actually these three inch spool blocks are the exact same block as the individual "butterflies" that make up the Beggar block. I've been making these for a couple of years too and have 534 of them. I guess it is about time to decide what to do with them.
Use them and join us each ScrapHappy Saturday to show us what you've done.
