I'm so excited with the finish of this quilt.
The kit was purchased in Rapid City, SD
by my sister-in-law
after I told her I would make it for her.
It took some courage to open the package
and begin the process,
but once I did,
things moved right along.
Here is "The Dance of the Dragonflies".
The kit was so well organized with easy to follow directions.
The most important feature was the pieces were all laser cut.
The background fabric was digitally printed for these wallhangings.
The pattern is made in a square,
but the sample in the shop was in the round.
We both loved this version.
The shop sample had some fun quilting on the background
and I managed to do some, too.
Each piece of fabric is machine stitched down with a
straight stitch and monofilament thread.
The colors are a tad bolder in person and so striking.
The shop from which the kit was purchased
sold these support wires so the wallhanging could be hung on the wall
and not anchored all the way around.
I ordered these when I got home and will let my
brother and sister-in-law insert them into the quilt.
The binding was made wider so there is a pocket
around the back of the quilt to hold the wires.
I am excited about delivering this quilt to them in a few weeks.
The dragonflies will be dancing in their home.
