Dance of the dragonfly

Please pat me on the back. Go on, I can’t reach it that well myself.

UFQ #2, the Circle Quilt has been COMPLETED. That’s the third completed UFO for those of you keeping score at home. Here’s a shot of it with scrappy binding sewn on, but not hand sewn to back yet at the time of photography.
This was one of my first quilts (that I started, that is) and I suspect it may have been intended as a baby quilt for the nephew who turned ten this month. I’m so not joking. I wish I were! As a result of it being an early attempt, I had some seams that I didn’t take deep enough. I decided to cover up these “weak” spots with dragonflies, and added a few more dragonflies, just for fun!
Why dragonflies? Well, if you look closely at the fabric in the border strip, it is a tone-on-tone with a dragonfly and polka-dot design:
The cirles are all hand appliqued. I quilted it with “straight” squares overlapping the wonky squares of the blocks, and some outline quilting in the borders.
It has been renamed “Dragonfly Dreams” and I think it will be a donation quilt for my church’s auction this autumn. Ah, it’s good to be done with something.

  1. Hi!Today I’m creating labels for the ATCs in the upcoming CYBER FYBER exhibition but I can’t resist sneaking a peek into some of the blogs while I work. I’m so glad I looked in on your wonderful blog. I love the fact that you are working on UFOs! It helps me remember that I’m not the only one with half completed work! Thanks for sharing and especially for trading with me!SusanCYBER FYBER and alsohttp://artbysusanlenz.blogspot.com
