Butterfly quilt blocks
While resting my foot I decided I would check out my butterfly blocks to see how many more I will need. The pattern I am using had a finished quilt size of 44 x 55 but I want a king size quilt approximately 109 inches by 109 inches, so I know I need a lot more than 18 butterflies. But just how many do I need?
The butterflies all still need little black bodies but I decided to do the bodies after I have all of the blocks completed. This isn't the final location for each butterfly, just a way to see how many I need. Well, it looks like I need 145 butterflies total, I have 106 ready for bodies so I'm very close. :)
Thanks again to all of you who helped by sending fabrics!! I have managed to keep it to where there are only 1 or 2 butterflies of each fabric - except one of the first ones I cut, there are 3 of it, lol.
