Dragonflies

I am working on my sister's beautiful dragonfly quilt.  It is taking me a little longer than expected for a couple of reasons..... first, life dared to interrupt my quilting!!! Secondly, I decided to use alot of echo-quilting on this quilt.  Echo-quilting takes alot of time to do but is absolutely beautiful when completed.

Echo-quilting is a method of quilting where you outline a piece of a quilt, in this case a piece of applique, then you outline your outline and continue in this fashion to fill a space on the quilt.  This method of quilting reminds me of the affect you get if you drop a pebble in a pool of water (like a puddle, lake or pond) and you see the series of rings extending from the spot the pebble went into the still water.

I am anxious to show this quilt to you and I'm sure my sister is anxious to see it too!  You will have to be patient just a little bit longer......I promise to hurry and finish soon.  Besides,  it will give you something to look forward to!

Happy Quilting,
Laurel
