Dance of the Butterflies Pattern

(4 customer reviews)


The Dance of the Butterflies Pattern was designed by Pauline Rogers, and is a Quilt As You Go quilt. Once finished it measures 45″ x 45″ or 1.14m x 1.14m.

Constructed in panels, you quilt the background first, then appliqué and join the quilt together. All of the black trim around the fans are made using the 1/4″ Sasher. The sashing is a triple up (three separate layers) using three different sized Sashers. This gives a beautiful and interesting effect to the quilt.

** You can purchase either a downloadable PDF or the physical Pattern (please select the relevant option from the dropdown menu below the video). ** Please note – if purchasing the downloadable PDF, the Pattern can be printed as an A5 booklet or on A4 pages. However, the Butterfly Template Sheets must be printed as an A4 size (this is the size provided with the physical Pattern). If you live outside Australia, please google paper sizes to ensure you print your Pattern and Template Sheets on paper that is an equivalent size to Australia’s (or print to ‘actual size’ if paper is larger).
