Are you a dragonfly fan? If this is not your favorite insect, there are reasons why it should be. First, a single dragonfly can eat hundreds of mosquitoes each day. They also devour gnats and biting flies, snagging them in mid-flight. How do they do this? Their outstanding vision and flying skills.
Dragonflies have almost 360-degree vision; they have only one small blind spot directly behind them. They can focus on one insect in a swarm and chase it while avoiding midair collisions with the other insects. Dragonflies have two sets of wings that they can operate independently. This allows them to fly forward, sideways, backwards, and hover. Dragonflies are fast; some species can fly 18 miles-per-hour!
Are you impressed? We hope so! In addition to their bug-devouring dexterity, visual acuity, and aerial agility, dragonflies are beautiful. Which is why designers who are dragonfly fans have been inspired to create dragonfly fabric.
If you want dragonfly fabric for quilting, Missouri Star has curated a dragonfly shopping page that we hope you will enjoy. We offer dragonfly fabric by the yard, dragonfly fabric panel, and dragonfly fabric precuts. For example, currently you can find a panel and a dragonfly fabric Jelly Roll bundle from Northcott Fabrics. We have dragonfly Layer Cake from Benartex, and dragonfly fat quarters from Kanvas Studio.
We offer dragonfly quilt patterns, dragonfly quilt kits, and dragonfly stencils on our dragonfly page. And we hope that you will check back. Our offerings will change as new fabrics, patterns, and dragonfly-themed quilting products become available. Dragonflies live near water. So the next time you are near a stream, river, pond, lake, or wetland–any area where water is still or slow-moving–be on the lookout for dragonflies. Take time to admire these amazing creatures. You might decide you want to capture them on a quilt!
