Into the Light

The dragonfly block in this quilt is an original design drafted while aboard our boat “Dragonfly”.  The original quilt layout represents a flight of dragonflies flowing from dark to light, deliberately getting more airy as the dragonflies reach the top and breaking the borders. 36 small dragonflies are quilted into the design.

The quilt is 93" x 112"

The quilt will be shown at the Wisconsin Quilt Expo  in September of this year.

Australian Fabric Jacket

I took a class from Mary Sue Fenner in June of this year.  using her creative style we created jackets from our fabric stash.  I used a flight of Australian Fabrics that I had purchased along with one African fabric purchase about 12 years ago while on a trip to Antigua.  The jacket also features a zippered front and pockets.  I am waiting for cool weather to be able to wear it.
