    I wish I could quilt along. I bought the pattern and cannot doownload it. I thought it was a paper pattern. Does it come in a paper pattern?

    Pattern was emailed to me after purchase. I’ve had it less than a month & already made both a baby & full size quilt. The blocks are large & go together quickly!

    Nice pattern but I do not think I will sew a quilt using these blocks. Perhaps a pillow would be an appropriate project for me.

    Great pattern, instructions are detailed, easy to follow. Have done both the firefly and bee blocks- both are huge so projects come together quickly and easily. Will be using this again!

    This is such an easy pattern to follow. I made a pair of pillows from it but have not made a quilt with it yet. Since each block is large, it is fun and quick. Planning for an easy winter quilt.

    There are many pieces to each block, but they go together easily. Directions are clearly written and easy to follow.

    Like all of the patterns offered by Patterndrop, this one is something new and modern! The directions are easy to follow, and the blocks come together quickly. It’s fun also to see what others are doing – thank you Patterndrop!

    For my purposes this is fine for a pillow, or a baby quilt, but I can’t see making this anytime in the near future.

    Another great pattern from Pattern Drop but this has been my favorite so far. I made 4 wall-hangings instead of a single quilt. I have since gifted 3 of them to friends and family. (Kept 1 for me.) Each was a big hit. Though there are many pieces, the pattern was so easy. And thank-you for the little tags to help organize the cut pieces! Outstanding! I am just about done making 4 more using the Bee option! Thanks again!

    This pattern is so cute. I have scaled it down to 6 inch blocks so I can have a whole bunch more on my quilt. Thank you for writing auch a fun pattern.

    Easy to finally even for a beginner quilter. I’ve had fun making bees and can’t wait to do the fireflies next.

    Very easy to read pattern and just as easy to make. I made this into a table runner for a friend who saw it when visiting me. Turned out great.

    Such an adorable pattern! It’s very well written and the parts that seem like they’d be difficult are not at all. It was a surprise how large the blocks are when completed. I won’t be making the full size quilt that is included in the instructions but rather a few smaller ones (4×4) and some pillows.

    Super cute, easy to follow pattern. I pre-ordered but didn’t receive it on release day. One email and it was immediately re-sent. Great customer service 🙂 thanks!

    Cute cute pattern and easy to follow! I love the fireflies as they remind me of my childhood. I don’t see them much anymore.

    I love blocks that make something so I am really looking forward to this pattern..but since I only quilt in cold months it will be a little while yet! I have a plan for a wall hanging to be hung in the reading corner of a library library that is dedicated to a favorite teacher gone to soon who loved fireflies.

    Such a fun quilt and one of my favorites in Pattern Drop. I love that there are different techniques and different colorways provided. I appreciate that you can do a firefly And a bee And a Queen bee; and the large blocks are super fast to piut together. I had no troubles at all downloading it. Thanks for another great month!

    Fabulous pattern and so much fun! The pattern is very well written and Katie has made tutorials if you new to paper piecing (which is only need for the antennas). I’m also enjoying seeing all the variations at #fireflyquilt.

    What a well-written pattern. I appreciate all the time and thought that went into its preparation. I was unable to closely participate in the quilt along due to my abundant life, but I was able to easily follow the pattern and create a nice baby quilt for my fourth grandchild. Great job!

    I love this pattern. I made the full size bee version and think it is super cute. The only change I would make is to leave out the corner pieces and instead piece with full blocks on point, but the block as it is written is wonderful. I made 2 bonus blocks so I could have matching cushions, and I have never had more compliments on anything I’ve ever made.
