Say Hello to Cleo, Ginger & Peggy!

CharmBlockscrop2

Say hello to the newest additions in the family of Butterfly Charm Blocks — Cleo, Ginger and Peggy! These appliqué versions of Nikki’s original paper piecing patterns were designed with Sari’s doodles and are created with a foundation paper pieced body/background and appliqué wings.

They measure 5.5” after piecing and can be used as a 5” finished block or trimmed to 5” for a 4.5” finished square, making them perfect for mixing with 5” charms.

We created our butterflies using Tula Pink True Colors and our SARIELLA Aurifil thread collection. Though we used a zig zag satin stitch, you can create these blocks with a raw edge appliqué method or any other method you prefer.

And here’s an example of the ladies in action! This is a Sewing Date Traveler (free pattern from Robert Kaufman) that Nikki stitched up. She used the new appliqué butterflies on one pocket and her original patterns on the other side. Isn’t it the cutest?!
