Cut Fabrics


To make the best use of your fabrics, cut the pieces in the order that follows.

Designer Sue Beevers used a variety of different combinations in her dragonfly blocks, but kept the background fabric consistent within each set of blocks. To follow her lead, mix up your use of prints for the dragonflies, remembering to make wing units symmetrical.
