The Night Dragonflies

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The combination of techniques... piecing the background, doing the photo transfer, and the embellishments. Even though the background is a bit busy and possibly distracting, the piece still represents a warm spring night in cherry blossom time, viewing the blossoms and watching the dragonflies...

What you will need

  • Cotton fabric
  • cotton batting
  • tulle
  • beads
  • photo transfer
  • star shells
  • decorative threads

Northwoods Pat answered:
Thanks for stopping by and commenting. It IS fun to check out the backs of quilts to see the quilting detail that doesn't always clearly stand out on the front. Thanks again!
