These butterflies are addictive. I keep wondering how different color combinations will look. I will probably end up with six. I was going to make a green one but then decided to stick with the colors I have been using so far. I need a bit more blue, though, to go with the blue on the first one I made on the right top row. The sashing is supposed to be cut on an angle to make the butterflies dance. I only have a 14 inch square and they are 12 1/2 inch squares. I might make a paper square so I can tell how they are going to look before I cut them. I'd hate to mess them up by trimming them wrong after all that work of piecing.
The one in the book has wide dark sashing with cornerstones but I am not sure I really like that look. The other sample in the book has no sashing at all and I'm not sure about that one either. Any suggestions?
