Taming the scrap basket part 3

Our quilting group at my church, “Wrapped in Love” makes a lot of baby quilts. As a result we had a pile of soft color scraps. I found a butterfly appliqué pattern and sized it on the copier so that it fit on a 10” block and fused it using Pellon Wonder-Under. In a former life I might have done a blanket stitch or a satin stitch to firmly attach the fused pieces to block, but I did multiple lines of free motion stitching with 30wt. thread.

Set with 10” scrappy blocks, the blocks are ready for a member of my quilting group to finish.
