Quilty Fun Sew Along, Week 15

This is the week for butterflies, one of my favorite blocks.
I have a board devoted to butterfly quilts on Pinterest, I love them so much!
You can see it here.
I placed my blocks in order on the floor, because I wanted to see what colors would look best for the butterflies.
The butterflies will go to the right of the houses.
The house on the right is pink with touches of red, including Little Red Riding Hood in the doorway.

I decided the first butterfly should be red, and since I like red so much, the third butterfly should be red also.
What goes perfectly with red?  Aqua!
I was in a hurry and made a mistake.
The middle butterfly should be going sideways for a scrappy look.
Do you think I should change it or leave it?
Leave me a comment and give me your opinion.

  1. Love the butterfly blocks and started following your Pintrest board. This quilt will be amazing- I look forward to seeing its progress.

  2. I would leave your butterflies as is. Other series in the quilt are going in the same direction i.e. apples, tree, tulips, baskets, houses. Maybe I also suggest it because I rip as little as possible. And your quilt doesn't have to be like the example.

  3. I like them all vertical, and that's how I made mine. Remember how Lori likes to say that you are the boss of your quilt!

  4. I like your color choices in your quilt. It will be beautiful when you finish. I'd leave the butterflies as they are. As Lori says you are the boss of your quilt.
