Butterfly Charm Block - Week 10 (Final Week)

I can't believe it's done!!!! This has been a fun and very educational 10 weeks.
And I am so very pleased with how this project turned out.

I have to admit staring into the process of the project I was so nervous. I was so afraid of royally messing this part up. But once again it was not nearly as hard as I thought it might be.

I started out by cutting the butterfly squares down so they were all exactly 5 in by 5 in and then I cut up 6 strips of the black that were just over 5.5 in by 1.5in.

Next I cut 2 more strips of black that were about 18.5 inches long by 1.5 inches

For the Final pieces I cut 2 black pices inside at 18 inches by 2.5in  and 2 more at 24in by 2.5in. I can't wait to back it and put the border on but I am so very very happy with how this looks. And I can't wait until my next project with Crystal. Also make sure you stop by and see her finished butterfly wall hanging!!!!

Butterfly Charm Block Week 9

OH MY GOSH!!!!! I can't believe this is the last butterfly to our project. This has been so much fun and I am so excited to say that I have started piecing it together.

If you have never done paper piecing before I honestly suggest just trying it out. We have had so much fun with this and it really is so easy!! I had never done paper piecing before we did this project but I checked out a  tutorial by Connecting Threads.  After I watched this a few times it has been super easy ever since!!!!

For those of you that are just tuning in My best Friend Crystal from Crystalized Designs and I have been doing a butterfly charm block sew along. We are using the Butterfly Charm Block  Paper Piece Pattern by Lillyella stitchery

I love how each individual butterfly turned out.  Well I hope you tune in next week to see it all put together!!!!

If you’re joining in on the sewing fun, I’d love to see! Feel free to post pictures on or tag me on any social media site!
Have a wonderful day!!!!

Looking Forward.....

As I sit here and dust off the cobwebs to my tiny ghost town of a blog, I am excited to make a fresh start and slowly get back to what...
