Aimee's Bee Block

I finally finished Aimee's bee block the other night.  Aimee asked for a butterfly block for a quilt that she's making for her daughter.  She sent along some great Art Gallery fabric, which I love.  

Here's the block that I came up with.  I really struggled with this block.  Aimee gave us a lot of freedom, but that almost worked against me.  I kinda wish there was a bit more guidance besides no applique.  I think I used my seam ripper more with this block than I have in a very long time.  

In the end, I like the outcome and I hope Aimee likes it. 


  1. I really like this butterfly, great pattern. I am not an applique person. I think this is so cute. And the fabrics are divine!

  2. Wow! I love this block and I love how the way you made this butterfly. It's indeed a great patter and you did a great job in making this one. I'm sure your friend Aimee will love it. Keep up the good work! :)
