It's the last week for the Warkton Lane fabric palette. While I am looking forward to rolling out a new palette in a few days, I will not leave Warkton Lane anytime soon because I have a big project underway using it. If you want some of this palette be sure to order before Friday because the sale price ends on the 5th!
Today I am working with a block called Flutterbye. I decided that for this one I will stick with a simple setting and just show you different ways to orient the block and color it to get different effects.
Starting with a plain horizontal setting and a black background.
Same setting, different colorway.
Same setting, alternating the coloring of the butterfly shapes.
Same coloring with alternating blocks rotated.
Remove the first border to create a scalloped border. If doing this for real I'd use an even number of blocks across and an even number of rows.
Play with the coloring of the green diamonds.
Add the darkest purple and more orange.
Again, I would do any of these with an even number of blocks and rows but I think you get the idea of how much you can change the look of a quilt with a few color changes and simply rotating some blocks.
