Cut 17 – 6 ½” squares from Cream or assorted neutrals for the butterfly background blocks.


AccuQuilt has a butterfly die – GO! Serendipity Specialty Set by Edyta Sitar that is what I used for my baby quilt. I also have a template in my PDF if you don’t have the die.

NOTE: Apply fusible web to the wrong side of the fabrics following the manufacturer’s instructions before cutting appliqué shapes.

  • Cut 17 – butterflies in assorted colors – template below.
  • Cut 17 – antennas from Brown

Use your favorite method of applique to apply each butterfly to the 6 ½″ cream blocks. I used invisible thread for the free motion applique on the butterflies.

Fabric Pens used on applique blocks

The antennas could be embroidered on but I used a fabric pen – fast and easy!

Sew the blocks together into 7 rows of 5 blocks, then join the rows.
