Is there any better way to kick off a weekend of creativity than with a brand new pattern? Certainly not! Enter the FREE Butterfly Charm Block pattern by Sariella — the super power design team of Nicole Young of Lillyella and Sarah Thomas of Sariditty.
The Butterfly Charm Block originated as a set of paper-piecing patterns that Nicole created, as shown here and below. Cricket, Gidget, and Pepper burst onto the scene in 2015 in a flurry of loveliness, fully representing Nicole’s signature style.
This new pattern release is the Sariella-ized version of these blocks — in other words, 3 new versions of the original butterflies all done up in Sarah’s signature style. Meet Cleo, Ginger, and Peggy!
We just love that these stunning butterflies can now be paper-pieced OR appliqued. Think of the possibilities — a full quilt, a wall hanging, or maybe even a dress or skirt? Or how about a handbag? Nicole incorporated all 6 blocks into her Sewing Date Traveler Bag, a free pattern from Robert Kaufman (available here). She used her original butterfly charm blocks on one pocket…
and the new applique versions on the other side.
