Are you ready for the first block in the Pretty Playtime Quilt Along with the Fat Quarter Shop? Today the talented and ever so inspiring Erin of Why Not Sew is sharing her inspiration for the Dragonfly Block. Eeeps! I am beyond excited for this first block and such a BIG fan of Erin’s work, too. Stop by the Fat Quarter Shop to get all the details on how to join us, too – if you’re not already. Plus take a peek at their gorgeous Dragonfly Block, too (shown below). So much fun, right?! Next, we’ll head over to Erin’s lovely blog to see what inspiration she has in store today … and I CAN’T WAIT!
Before we race over, I wanted to share a little bit about my inspiration behind the Dragonfly Block. This block is inspired by my mother-in-law. She LOVES everything dragonflies (keychains, wind chimes, plates – she has them). She says dragonflies are like little angels that watch over her in the garden. I love that – and I’m pretty much fascinated with these little creatures, too. I hope this block brings joy to your everyday as much as it does mine (and my mother-in-laws, too). Dragonflies add a dash of fun and charm to the fun Garden Fairy Sampler Quilt.
Here is a list of the amazing bloggers joining us on the quilt along – I look forward to their beautiful inspiration each week! Please stop by and say hello … and let them know how excited you are for the quilt along, too! We’ll see you next week for the 2nd block – BOWS! xx Elea
