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.
Dragonflies are one of those bugs that instantly brings back childhood memories for me. From swimming and canoeing on the lake to fishing with my family, they were always a sign of summer!
Dragonfly Quilt Block
The Dragon quilt block is available in two finished sizes that measure:
- 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm)

Materials & Tool Supply List:
- Assorted Scraps: Assorted Colorful Prints, Black and Background Prints

Since Dragonflies can be found buzzing around in so many amazing colors, this block is perfect for your scrap bin! Just think about how many different combinations you can stitch up.
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.
