Butterflies - 47 Down 9 to Go


Indigo is the color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. If I had any indigo scraps I would probably have used them in January, the bright blue month.  In the absence of indigo we can use black and/or gray.   So, black it is.   I made a couple of 9 inch butterfly (beggar) blocks in black and I found some red pieces I forgot to use in last month's blocks. 

I need 56 blocks so if I make 3 in each of the next month's colors I'll be ready for a quilt. 
I based it on one I saw at Nostalgic Cafe a few years ago.

Thanks for posting your inspiration quilt! I've been wondering how you might set the blocks.

Great looking butterflies! I loved your green donation quilt too and I do hope so very much that you will soon be able to post another happy child's face as they receive your pretty gift!
