2020 Saturday Sampler, Tula Pink’s “Butterfly Quilt”
This BOM is a “go”.
3rd Saturday of the Month, February 2020 through
Each month construction of blocks will be reviewed along with completion of various sections of this quilt. The quilt pattern is a lot of fun, very colorful & relatively easy. Build the quilt from your stash in any colorway!
The quilt pattern is made up in 3 parts: the blocks, the sections, and then putting it all together. Each month Polly will demo the construction of the blocks and later putting the sections together. The Shop Sample was started with scraps of batiks, then added some cotton and just kept going. There are several photos of this quilt on Tula Pink’s website, done in a variety of colors, not just pink.
Purchase of the Pattern is required, $30
No Class Fee!
