Mariposa - means Butterfly

Mariposa . . . 

means Butterfly and seemes like the perfect name for one of my new creations!


This is one of the eight Butterflies, using a coordinating blue batik and blue batik print

Another Butterfly using a coordinating gold batiks


 First, make the half square triangles for the two-tone wings


 
Cut them apart and press seams open















A neat stack of butterfly wings - almost ready.


Using this nifty pressing bar makes pressing super easy.

The wings are designed to be a bit over-sized and are easily cut down to the correct size.  

Use a square ruler with a diagonal center line to make this even easier.
 Ta Daaa - all cut and ready!


Mariposa Sneak Peek

Here are the Butterflies - there are a total of eight in the large quilt and four in the table runner.  I am putting the finishing touches on the pattern so it is ready for release by May 2015

 

Hope you enjoyed this picture presentation.  Stay tuned for more upcoming patterns.
