Paper piece this cute firefly and butterfly duo using the clearly labeled paper piecing patterns and directions in our Flighty Friends quilt block pattern set. The firefly and butterfly patterns as given make 6 inch (15.24 cm) quilt blocks. The useful percentages table included will guide you in resizing to several other popular block sizes.

The legs and antennae may be machine satin-stitched, hand embroidered, or added with fabric paint marker.

Include these gentle flyers in your next flower or baby quilt, or add them to the Escaping Bugs Bottle Quilt, The butterfly quilt pattern in particular is quite easy to sew. Stitch them in subtle, natural prints, or go all out with totally wild colors just for fun. Experiment with different color schemes on the coloring page provided.

Flighty Friends is an instant download PDF pattern, and also includes a basic tutorial on paper piecing (also known as foundation piecing).
