    Oh prayers to your brother and his family. Don't worry about us we will be here when you get back. Also I will send out the other four blocks to you and glad you were able to make a block with ease. It really isn't a hard pattern. Dragonfly Nana your right pin all your blocks together so I know who made what. Next week I will start on the star blocks. Should be fun

    Evelyn, sorry to hear about your brother!

    I haven't gotten them put together into a row yet, but I wanted to post the blocks I completed for your row!

    Sure - I draw the dragonfly on applique paper (I made myself some templates a while ago) then choose a light colored fabric scrap from the ones I used in the quilt to adhere it to.

    When the quilting is mostly done I attach the applique to the back in a corner where I won't be quilting by using a half ladder stitch on my machine. Some people call the stitch by another name but I can't remember what right now.

    Then I finish quilting, bind it, and then I write on it with a pigma pen and press the dragonfly to set the ink before I wash it.
    Hope that helps.

    Yes - please choose one fabric that you used in the row for me, iron a wing to the back side of that fabric and then sign the front. I will trim them up when the come back and attach them all to a body that I make.
    I guess since we only have four members I will be the fourth wing and the date will go in the body.
    Thanks for asking.
