With a little creativity and a touch of courage, quilting can be a real “choose-your-own-adventure” experience. What happens if I rotate half my blocks? What if I switch out the white background for a bright solid? What if I use a 10-inch square instead of a 5-inch? Before you know it, you have created a totally unique quilt. You are an artist! You are an inventor! You are AMAZING!!!
Today Jenny will guide us through the Whimsical Shoofly Quilt, a simple variation of the shoofly or churn dash. You’ll be amazed to see what a difference a small change can make – and maybe you’ll be inspired to make a few changes of your own!

There’s something so fantastic about the lifecycle of a butterfly. He starts his journey as an inconsequential little caterpillar with a huge appetite. After weeks of glorious gluttony, he takes one massive, cozy nap. And then? He wakes up magnificently elegant and graceful! Why doesn’t that work for me? Just once in my life I’d love to binge all day on a quart of rocky road, take an epic nap on the sofa, and wake up as glorious as a butterfly!
For now, I’ll settle for the super-easy Butterfly Blossom Quilt. This quilt is incredibly beautiful, and it’s a breeze to make!
This sweet pattern is made with 2 charm packs and the MSQC Periwinkle Template. Isn’t it so cute?
