RBD Block Challenge Block 8; Butterfly Quilt Block Pattern

Welcome to week 8 of the Riley Blake Quilt Block Challenge! Three weeks of each month, I’ll be sharing a free 10″ quilt block pattern. At the end of the challenge, you’ll have enough blocks to make an entire quilt. This week I’m excited to be sharing a free butterfly quilt block pattern with you.

About the Butterfly Quilt Block

This week’s block is the Butterfly Block designed by Elea Lutz. I love this block pattern; it’s so simple yet so stunning at the same time.

This block is straightforward to construct and would be a great block for a beginner but looking to try something a bit more detailed than just a simple patchwork quilt.

Gerri from Planted Seed Designs actually turned the block into an entire quilt!

If you want to do something similar, create a grid with “blank” 10″ blocks and the finished butterfly blocks. There are a million different ways to arrange the two.

My block is constructed using two prints from the Liberty Flower Show line. I chose a slightly larger scale floral for this block since the larger pieces can handle the scale.

I took a few minutes to put all of my blocks up on my design wall this week. I haven’t looked at all of them “at once” yet. Thankfully, I’m thrilled with how they are working together. My oldest daughter has already claimed this quilt when it’s finished. I might have a hard time parting with it!
