Night of the Dragonfly

Posted in Cathedral Windows tagged , , at 2:45 PM by Shelley Swanland

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. Enjoy!night-of-the-dragonfly-detail

Romantic Reflection

I have started to put my patterns on http://www.Craftsy.com . Berries Jubilee, Romantic Reflection, Parchment & Black Lacquer and Sparkling Stars are now available for purchase and download as PDFs at my Craftsy store. I appreciate all the support I have had through the years for my technique and hopefully this will make the technique available to more quilters all over the world. I will be adding more patterns as time goes on so if you have a favorite you’re waiting for just let me know.
