Illustrated Sewing Tutorial - How to Sew the Butterfly Quilt Wall Hanging 1 - Creating the Appliques and Preparing the Blocks

Seam allowance is already included. In all of the sewing steps, sew with the pressure foot along the edge of the fabric. That is approximately a 7mm or 1/4” seam allowance.

1. Cut 6 blocks of fabric measuring 17 x 17 cm (6.8 x 6.8 inches). Plan which contrasting colors you would like to use for the butterflies and arrange these on the fabric. Make sure there is a variety of patterns and colors and no two blocks are the same.
