    Wow! That's a great top, and your quilting adds so much! Superb quilting! Great example of artistic synergy between piecer and quilter! It inspires me to make a simple top of great fabric, then send it to a brilliant longarmer!

    WOW!! Beautiful quilting. Your work reminds me so much of Green Fairy's. Here is a link to her blog with some pictures. http://greenfairyquilts.blogspot.com...ans-quilt.html

    As a beginning longarmer myself, I love the details. Can you please tell us how you did this. It looks like all free hand. Did you create a template for yourself for the dragonflies? What kind of Longarm do you have?
    Thanks!

    I usually use the A&E from Dallas Thread. Im not a thread hog, like to have lots of colors, but my Gammill really likes this thread and I dont have to fuss with it much...

    Thank you!! I take a coloring page and cut it out for the outline, otherwise it would look like a baseball bat or something, then I use 505 spray - place it where I want it, stitch around it, do the inside free hand.. The background fill is all free hand. I have a Gammill Classic that I bought used 4 years ago, its a real work horse.
    Once again thank you.
