This is week ten in the Sewcial Bee Sampler sew along, hosted by Sharon Holland and Maureen Cracknell! Butterfly Crossing is the block for this week (for the free download to make this block, visit Maureen's or Sharon's blog).
This block is one that takes a bit more work to make, but I found it to be a wonderful design for using lots of scraps. I used 34 different, low volume scraps for the block itself, PLUS another four low volume fabrics for the borders and there are 18 different blue scraps for the butterflies! It makes me all kinds of happy seeing so many favourite pieces tossed together like this!
I'll be adding Butterfly Crossing, to this colourful mix of blocks made for weeks 1-9. There are fifteen more blocks to make in this sampler before we finish and I am getting so excited to see the blocks together!

Thinking about joining the sew along? It's not too late! The blocks are great skill builders and Maureen and Sharon are doing a wonderful job of inspiring and cheering us all on. You will find lots of helpful tips, too! Instructions for each block are well written, so it's beginner friendly and for those of us with a bit of experience, we are certainly free to play a bit with things (as I have been doing by making extra pieces several of my in my scrappy versions ;o). Sew along at your own pace, so even if the timing isn't the best for joining in and stitching a block a week; know that you can always download the PDF for each block so you have the information when you are ready to start sewing.
