The Butterfly Block

Right now my life feels a little out of control. I think I have too many things on one small little plate. Maybe it's just PMS and I'll feel better tomorrow...
Butterfly Quilt Block
I've had a couple of requests for the pattern I used to make Jennifer's Virtual Quilting Bee butterfly quilt block.
Well, I didn't have a pattern, although I did "design" something in EQ5 at the time.
So, today I drew up a pattern for the Butterfly Quilt Block which I'd love to share.
The VQB block was 12" square but to make printing easier, I designed this one at 10" finished.
It's foundation pieced and machine appliqued. Refer to the photo for placement of the applique pieces.
I saved the pattern in two PDF files.

If you do try out this pattern, please let me know how it worked out.
