Butterfly Blocks for Toni

This month it was Toni's turn to direct us in the KC Scrappy Bee.  She decided to have us each make butterfly blocks.  We were each given a different color of hand dyed fabric to play with.  I chose the purples to use in my blocks.  I was able to make two blocks before I ran out of the black fabric I had. 

Butterfly 1

Butterfly 2

I made one skinny and one fat.  I think it gives the personality!  I roughly used this tutorial to make these guys.  I thought it would be even more "scrappy" if I just eye-balled it, so that's just what I did!

Toni didn't specify a size for the blocks, so I just trimmed mine to a rectangle so Toni can slice them to whatever the quilt dictates. 

Here's links to the blocks that Hannah, Paula, Nikki, and Carla.  Nikki did this extra block, too!

I hope you enjoy your butterfly blocks, Toni!

I love them and the black background really makes the butterflies stand (or should that be fly?) out.
