Dragonfly Bug Jar Quilt Block


All quilters eventually get around to making a jar quilt of some kind.  You can fill them with bugs, food, or anything you desire.  Half the fun is  the search for the fabrics.  This bug jar block is very attractive. Many quilters are afraid to use black in their quilts.  Black makes a quilt dynamic, as you can see from this block. 


You can use jar blocks in everything from quilts to wallhangings,  potholders, tablerunners, etc.  They are a lot of fun to make.  This block is certainly inspiring.
