My Band Sampler 47 – Butterflies – Details 594 and 595 March 28th, 2008

Detached buttonhole stitch butterfliesDetached Chain Stitches makes lovely butterflies.

The first time I encountered these butterflies was on the cover of Dorothy Bonds book Crazy Quilt Stitches (ISBN 0-9606086-0-5) which look much like the first purple butterfly which is done with silk buttonhole twist thread.

I tend to leave a gap between the wings so that I can add a stitched or beaded body…the second butterfly is stitched with Rayon Thread and has a beaded body.

The 3rd butterfly is stitched with Silk Ribbon and has a stitched body…Silk Ribbon makes a lovely full winged butterfly.

Below is a flight of Butterflies on a detail from my crazy quilt called Butterflies. Detached buttonhole stitch butterflies
