The final block in the AQS Vintage Block series is #9, Betsey’s Butterfly. We hope you’ve enjoyed this nostalgic look at patterns from the past redesigned with modern piecing techniques in mind.
Betsey’s Butterfly was inspired by a butterfly block that appearing in Aunt Kate’s Quilting Bee, a magazine for quilt lovers published by Glenna Boyd of Burleson, Texas, from 1962 until 1979. Aunt Kate’s Quilting Bee was the precursor to the quilting magazines of today. It had a friendly, chatty style and contained quilt patterns from several sources, including her own designs. Thanks to Quilting Bear Gal for that tidbit.
