Edyta’s project begins with a glorious selection of colorful batiks of every shade and color that have been pre-cut into easy-to-use 10-inch squares. And by applying a lightweight fusable webbing to the back of each, she makes the precision cutting of butterfly wings look ridiculously easy. The GO! Butterfly Patch uses the official GO! Butterfly die and adapter in conjunction with the Studio 2 Fabric Cutter to make sharp and accurate cuts without the threat of fraying. And when it’s time to applique, a lightweight nylon invisible thread tacks each butterfly securely in place without heavy stitch lines to overwhelm.Using the shortcuts that Edyta provides to piece the simple strips and nine-patch blocks that form the sashing and cornerstones of this contemporary coverlet, you’ll complete your GO! Butterfly quilt top in record time – even when adding the delicate die-cut leaves and stems as trim.
Edyta provides instruction for piecing your GO! Butterfly quilt in classic side-by-side array or in other, less traditional arrangements to both inspire and encourage your artistic efforts. So whether you prefer a more ageless design, or you’re a contemporary quilter – there’s inspiration enough to go around. If you’ve avoided tackling the art of applique quilting because the patterns appear too delicate to cut or too intricate to stitch, the GO! Butterfly Patch is a perfect introduction to this ancient art form. Following the simple instructions provided, you won’t believe just how easy it is to piece together a design that looks much more difficult than it actually is.So what are you waiting for?
