Elizabeth Hartman - Lepidoptera Quilt Pattern
Like the biological order for which it’s named, the Lepidoptera sampler quilt includes a variety of beautiful butterflies and moths. Alice, Beatrix, Carmen, Della, Eugenia, and Fern combine to make an 84” x 84” sampler quilt perfect for using your favorite colourful fat quarters! The 45” x 45” Small Quilt includes a single large-scale Alice block and makes a perfect baby quilt or wall hanging.
All blocks are sewn with simple straight and diagonal seams. No templates or paper piecing!
When selecting colourful fat quarters for the Lepidoptera quilt, choose colourful fabrics in sets of six monochromatic fat quarters each. The quilt will be most successful if the fabrics in each set include a value scale from lightest (Fabric 1) to darkest (Fabric 6).
If you prefer, you can easily substitute scraps or odd-sized fabric from your stash for the colorful fat quarters. The instructions for each of the block designs include a complete list of cut pieces for each block, so it’s easy to use scraps or make blocks for other projects.
