Rachael's AQB block

June is Rachael's month for AQB2. She sent us all cute strips of fabric from Paula Prass' Flights of Fancy line. I've been mulling over her block for quite awhile. She also sent really cute ric rac and I really wanted to use it. When I was browsing through Flickr the other day, I saw this. It was made by my AQB1 buddy, Tascha. I love Tascha's butterfly block and wanted to re-create for Rachael. Here's Rachael's block: I probably should have used a solid for the background so that the butterfly would pop more but I really wanted to use the pink cobble stone. I wasn't able to use her ric rac as it was too thick but I used some of mine. I really like the way this block turned out and I hope Rachael does too. Only one more quilting bee block to go and I will have all my June blocks completed.


  1. That's great! I love it-- can't wait to see it in real life! Thanks so much!

  2. I love the block and I love the fabric. I like that it isn't an in your face butterfly but subtle with the back ground fabric. It turned out so pretty.

  3. Your block turned out wonderfully. I can't claim credit for the butterfly either. It was a pattern sent to me by Terrie from Chocolateisthebestmedicine! It does make a cute block. I really love the symmetry of the border in your block.
