Dragonfly quilt

(click on images to enlarge)

Here is a picture of my dragonfly quilt. It is a little quiltlet 10" square. Working on a small quilt allows you to use different techniques and experiment. This one has been in a few shows and I think will retire itself to home.

I couched the yarn for the vines using invisible thread and a zig zag stitch on the machine. The background is a wonderful batik I bought at Patchwork Dreams. The dragonfly wings are fused Wonder Under and machine stitched. I beaded the dragonfly body.
