Butterfly Paper Piecing

Little wall hangings are one of the most satisfying projects. I have a big list of such projects in my to do list :-).

One of my very close friend bought a house recently and I was looking for some cute wall hanging designs. I came across this butterfly pattern. The pattern is called “Take Wing,” created by Nicole Young of Lilly Ella’s Stitchery. I purchased the pattern at the craftsy store HERE.  The instructions are clear and easy to follow.

This is the second project I did with paper piecing. Only hard time I had was, figuring out which fabric to use as the center fabric for the wing.  I started off with a white fabric just because it had butterflies in it. But somehow, looked like the colors didn’t come together and I didn’t take the pain off ripping off those little stitches.


So I started off with a new center fabric and it came out pretty quickly.


Most of the fabrics I used were Jelly rolls from Moda Sewing Box Jelly Rolls By Gina Martin, I bought a while ago from Craftsy and used in some of my previous projects.  Rest were the half yard fabrics I bought at our local quilt show.

When it came to quilting, I was stuck and din’t want to quilt the design given in the pattern. Finally ended up with some echo quilting.  Here is the finished quilting.


Finished with some colorful binding and hopefully my friend will like it :-). I hope she doesn’t look at the blog before I give this to her :-).

For Backing, I used Cotton and Steel fabric.


Here is the finished front:

I wish I added some antennae. But now that the quilt is done, I don’t want to spoil the look. Hope you will like this as much as I do :-). Thank you for dropping by.
