butterfly charm blocks

Say hello to Cricket, Gidget & Pepper, the Butterfly Charm Blocks!

These little paper pieced blocks measure 5.5” after piecing and can be used as a 5” finished square or trimmed to 5” for a 4.5” finished square, making them perfect for mixing with 5” charms.

    Well, I did my first paper pieced block. I chose Gidget since she seemed the easiest to make and I used Cassandra’s tut as well. Thank you so much for your generosity. I’m working on the maker mat. I will try and share when it’s complete. Again thanks!

    Nicole I am new at this. You had sent me an email to my reply. Here is my question that might help others. Can I make the block bigger than 5″ and it still be okay? I want to say yes but I haven’t done this before. I’m gathering supplies – can’t wait to make them. I figure I should do these before I try the one I bought from you. It looks like I need experience for it. lol

      Hey Paula! Short answer, yes. You can reduce or enlarge any pattern. The only thing that will change and affect measurements is the outer 1/4″ seam allowance. It will be larger than needed when you blow up a pattern. So, in that case, you would simple trim using a 1/4 guide on a quilters ruler rather than using the dotted seam allowance line on the pattern. I hope this helps!

    These are wonderful patterns! Just made 2 of each one. No 2 alike. Thank you for sharing. Wish I could share a picture with you. Not sure how. Audrey
