 I have a new grand niece.
Her name is Julie Libelle.
Julie is after her grandmother, my sister in law,
and Libelle is German for dragonfly.
Grandma Julie loves dragonflies.
Well, I've had a quilt finished for this little one for a while.
(I haven't unpacked it yet from my move,
but am pretty sure I know where it is!) 
However, several days before she was born,
I was looking through a box of fabrics and found a 
layer cake of fabrics with dragonflies and such.
I told myself that I needed to make something with it
soon, since it was so pretty.

Little did I know that I would have Libelle arrive within days.

I saw this pattern, Emilia, by Robin Pickens on line and knew
it was perfect for these fabrics.

It was a bit fussy to make this from 10" squares,
but it came together and I love the results.

This needs a good pressing before it's quilted.
I love how the design goes out into the borders.

Do you see all of the dragonflies?
I'm looking forward to meeting my niece and
giving her this quilt.
(I think I may have to make her grandmother one, too!)
I am linking to Design Wall Monday today.

Happy Quilting!

Wow, Ramona, this dragonfly quilt is a delight! I love the colors and the design. I too love how the design moves out into the border. Your new grand niece’s name is so sweet.

Oh, so cute and perfect--a dragonfly quilt for Julie LIBELLE!!!

It is amazing how making the design go into the border changes the look of the quilt entirely. It is gorgeous and will make a fantastic baby gift for Julie.

Such interesting fabrics! And such a lucky little girl. Do you have the Dancing Dragonfly Quilts book by Sue Beevers? It's one of the few quilt books that I want to make every one in it. Thanks for inspiring me to get it out!
