Overview

Welcome to the wonderful world of butterflies. Over three dozen beautiful butterfly patterns, including several Monarchs in different shapes and sizes, are just begging to be appliqued. With each pattern is a color photograph of the appliqued block, a full-sized butterfly pattern, and tips on applique technique and fabric selection. The reader will also find a fascinating guidebook-like description of each butterfly and its characteristics. The patterns are fun to do, with only three pieces in the Checkered White butterfly, and most of the butterflies having only five to nine pieces to applique. Many of the patterns have been simplified for ease of cutting and sewing; however, the author was true to the basic shape and the field markings of the species.

Meet the Author

Before Bea started quilting in the mid 1980s, she was not familiar with quilting in any form. However, she had a background in home economics. She also studied weaving and oil and watercolor painting, and she earned a certificate from the Sogetsu School of flower arranging. After Bea started quilting, and especially doing applique, she discovered how the painting and flower-arranging media were interchangeable with quilting designs in color and form.
