    final picture of the original blocks sewn and top stitched and the second blocks sewn, the bias edges rolled back but not top stitched yet. I ran a row of stitches around the perimeter of the block so I could do the roll backs for the picture. Hopefully the pictures explain the process.

    Thanks Tartan, I got the pattern and it was unclear to me how to pull the curve back. Now I see it gets folded back on top of triangle. Now I have to make one. This is so pretty.

    I saw a quilt made with this pattern (at a Quilt Show) and it has been my favorite quilt I have ever seen because I love dragonflies. I immediately bought the pattern and got a little overwhelmed when I looked at the directions. You've made it so easy. I printed off your pictures and now I am anxious to make one for a little wall hanging. I might make 4 of them to make a larger wall hanging. Thank you for sharing this
