Dragonfly Quilt

This is a paper pieced quilt.  This one is queen size.
I had a machine embroidery header made to match this quilt.
The dragonflies on this all go different directions in a spiral.
All dragonflies are made from different fabrics.
It was fun to see how they would turn out.
The antana's are hand embroidered on, that is how you anchor the heads to the quilt.
We here at the Busy Bee's hope this gives you some ideas for your next project.
You can buy this and many other paper piecing patters at:

  13. When I initially left a comment I appear to have
    clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added-
    checkbox and from now on whenever a comment is added I recieve four emails with the exact same comment.
    Perhaps there is a means you are able to remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!
