After the sweet response to last weeks Butterfly Beauty, I thought it would be fun to add a Dragonfly quilt block to the series. This block is perfect for summer sewing and a great compliment to other blocks within the series.

Overall, the Dragonfly quilt block is easy to make however, the 6″ finished block continues small pieces and might be tricky for the beginning quilters. To help keep everyone on track, I put together a quick video with a few additional tips for success.

  1. Heather, will you ever be adding to the bird and birdhouse patterns of a little while ago?

    • Hello Jo Ann,
      Thanks a bunch for checking in. I’m happy to hear that you like those blocks. Honestly, they really make me smile too! Yes, I have a few more blocks designed around this theme and they will be released later this summer. So, keep your eyes peeled!

    Love these blocks, so fun! Nice to take our minds off the craziness of our current world

  4. what happened with the block emails this week? i had less than 2 days to download the pattern and missed the free window !! sad me.

    • Hello Kit,
      Thank you for your note. My emails are going out on the regular. Perhaps, it was captured in your spam/junk folder. It is best to keep updated with the site and check regularly for new block offerings.

    Love the dragonfly pattern you just created! My concern is the amount of background space on the sides when blocks are assembled. The top & bottom have enough without interfering the dragonfly, however he wings will end up shorted due to insufficient background space when pieced together to form a quilt. Any suggestions or possible modifications? I look forward to hearing from you on the solution to this

    • Hello Patricia,
      Thank you for your note. I am happy to hear that you like the overall design. Unfortunately, my block was designed this way to maintain a square shape. You could turn the block into a rectangle and elongate the wings if you like.
