Pretty Playtime Quilt Along: Week 2 - Dragonfly Block!

Welcome to Week 2 of our Pretty Playtime Quilt Along,
featuring the 
Pretty Playtime Quilts book!
We'll be taking you through the construction of this gorgeous sampler quilt block by block and we're just getting started, so grab some fabric, the Pretty Playtime Quilts book, and get ready to start quilting!

This week's block is the Dragonfly Block, found in the upper left of the quilt.  The block features two adorable dragonflies, and is a sweet and simple way to get things started!  Our quilt was made with Elea Lutz' Strawberry Biscuit fabric collection, which you can find HERE.

If you're interested in replicating the sampler quilt in the book exactly as seen above, we've got a handy dandy kit for you. The Garden Fairy Sampler Quilt Kit includes the fabric for the top and binding, and we also have a Backing Set for the Fairy Garden Sampler Quilt! Don't forget that you'll need a copy of the Pretty Playtime Quilts Book, so order your copy of the book and kit today!

Oooh....I think I'm gonna have to go with Kimberly on this one. I really love the colors and patterns of Handmade by Bonnie & Camille. Their collections are always so vibrant and pretty!

I bought the kit and book. Is there a special site or page I need to go to follow along?
