In addition to my dragonfly fabric, I fused three dragonflies I cut from organza. Being even more fragile than the tulle, they were starting to fray while I was quilting, so I have them a little ‘positive reinforcement’ with some tiny stitching in pale gray silk.
I think I’m done for tonight.
I don’t want to add anything else on the front now, otherwise it may be a little too much. The contrast of embroidered and plain areas I feel are just right.
Back and sides will go on tomorrow!
For the first time in my life, I’m watching the classic Sailor Moon anime (when I was little, all I had seen of Sailor Moon were the three movies). While watching, I fell completely in love with Kunzite and Zoisite as a couple, and when each was killed, I was left heartbroken. I decided to make something for the two of them…
I’m terrible at drawing, and attempting to paint is even worse, so I decided to create something for them out of the only medium I know: fabric.
This is a quilt top that my sister, Charlene made for me and I then machine quilted on my HQ Avante. This is one that i am proud of, it turned out beautiful. This will be a gift to someone I have known for 25 years.
I am sitting down! It has been one of those up and down, here and there weeks for me. Heaps of administration and more paper than anything in my study. Dreams’ Quilt pattern has now been printed and its heartwarming story ready to be shared.
