Different Butterfly Quilt

      This quilt is not the batik material that I used before.  This time I
 just used 2-5 1/2 inch print squares for front wings, then another 2-5 1/2
 inch solid/or mini print squares of contrasting material for back wings an
d then drew a line crosswise on each 2 1/2 inch white Kona material squares
(need 12 of these squares for each block), snowballed them on 3 sides of th
e 5 1/2 inch squares, trimmed them and then pressed. Then cutting a piece o
f the same print or solid material same as the wings, 1 1/2 inches wide by  
11 inches long for the body.  I did trim the body once it was sewn on.  The
n use 2 1/2 inch Kona white for sashing. Remember that butterfly's are colo
rful and bright so when buying or using scrappy material.  Hope I haven't c
onfused anyone here. Try this block because it is so simple that anyone can
 do it, even a beginner.  My quilt is 5 blocks wide by 6 blocks long. The s
ashing makes it wider and longer.

 Note: You can use any white material for snowballing, I just prefer Kona.
