Like the biological order for which it’s named, my 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 colorful 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! The pattern includes a fabric chart with easy-to-follow codes to ensure that you can duplicate my fabric placement exactly or, if you’re using different fabric, distribute it evenly throughout the quilt. When selecting colorful fat quarters for the Lepidoptera quilt, choose colorful fabrics in sets of 6 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).
