A Dragonfly Summer
This dragonfly was found on the building outside of where my neice works. I admire all of the details with all of the sections and lines. A true work of art in itself.
Even the delicate wings of lace are all so facinating.
I felt quite inspired to quilt this lovely piece for Suzan.
The back of this quilt top shows an interesting way that it was pieced. Rather square construction, but the top was curved and then stitched down.
Even the pinwheels are made with folds.
I really enjoyed quilting such wonderful open spaces.
As I walked out to get the paper, I saw a few dragonflies flitting in the air. Soon the dragonflies will be gone as they get their last hurrah for summer, but the memories in the quilt will live on even in the winter months.
