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 up
