Style Classic, Casual

What materials did you use? For project I used all cotton fabric and batting. I used some sheer fabric on the wings of the dragonfly. Also used some fabric paint on the wings.

What are you most proud of? I have actually completed this project and am very proud of the end results. In this I can see my growth in applique abilities and quilting. My combination of colors and use of the fabric paint to not only highlight the wings but stablize the sheer fabric.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be open to change. The original stained glass only had one lily and nothing else. Create as you go, it all comes from the heart. If you feel something is missing and cant figure it out...set it aside. I did that more than once in the last 8yrs and am very happy with my end result. I now have this hanging in my hallway. I am totally drawn to it every time I pass by because of the echo quilting......amazing. I cant get a good shot of it in the hallway but the last picture added (without the name label) does show what I was just talking about.

very pretty. The dragonfly added just the right touch.

Thank You so very much! At first I thought a butterfly, but when I found this guy I knew that is what I wanted. I may have done him different slightly had I not been sick when I completed it but I do like it.

Got a RED RIBBON at the Clackamas County fair on this wallhanging! Very exciting for me, I do not usually enter anything in fairs! I also got a BLUE RIBBON on one of my quilts....very happy!
