    a new Celtic Dragonfly quilt for a family friend- still needs binding

    i had to make a second Celtic Dragonfly quilt after a family friend saw the purple one i made my daughter and wanted to buy it- i had to tell her 'no- it's not for sale, it's a birthday gift for my daughter; but i can make you one of your own'
    she wanted green instead of purple- so i dyed the green fabric for the background & backing;
    added broidery perse applique for the dragonflies instead of the black silhouettes i used on my daughter's. i finished quilting it last night- have the binding made- just not on yet- my weekend hand project- but since i took pics for the recipient i thought i would share with you tooName:  celtic dragonfly_7.JPG

    I had never heard of Broderie perse before. Had to google it and it sure is interesting. Now I have to add that to my list of want-to-do's. All because you made a beautiful quilt that I am very intrigued by. Thank you for sharing!

    Just as beautiful as the first one for your daughter. I think I may have to add this to my bucket list. I bookmarked the pattern site from you last post. She has some really neat stuff and I am always up for learning a new technique.

    I love this. I have Irish roots and love Celtic designs. Never heard of Broderie perse though.

    Another great dragonfly quilt to be sure I love the purple on and now I love this one. What a great job on the dying and the Broderie perse, and the celtic knot. You should do a tute on dying fabric.

    Did you make a wider black bias to go under the colored ones? I love the effect! It is gorgeous!
