Night of the Dragonfly

Night of the Dragonfly is leaving my collection to hang at my close friend Carol’s cabin. This quilt is, and I’m guessing, about 15 years old. I made it around the time I wrote my two books, Machine Stitched Cathedral Windows and Machine Stitched Cathedral Stars.
It represents the more complex range of my Cathedral Window technique and was never published.night-of-the-dragonfly-w I told Carol that I wanted to photograph it so I could show if off before it didn’t live at my house anymore.¬†The Dragonfly fabric that I used is one of my all time favorite¬†fabrics.
