Butterfly, from the collection of Janet Lyles. First published as a pattern in the 1936 Kansas City Star. Butterflies are pieced, rather than more typical appliquéd butterflies. Free vintage quilt pattern from McCall's Quilting.
Quilt-as-you-go - they did this right on their long-arm machine. I don't have one, but could maybe use a bit of fusible web to hold each piece in place, then quilt it all together. Love the simple idea for a very usable throw-on-the-grass type of quilt.
