Japanese quilt block 3b...Dragonfly
Because the blocks are all hand appliqued, they are taking a long time just to get one finished, and being interrupted with getting meals etc. ..doesn't help much either...can you tell I would rather be stitching than cooking!.
but I have nearly finished the second Dragonfly block...I'm making two of each block to start with and then I'll see if I need to make more of the same.
Here is the finished first dragonfly block, I added some detail vein stitching to the leaves and a feather stitch to the wings of the dragonfly to make them stand out more
I have ordered some more fabric from the states, as I feel I needed a little bit more of a variety to add to the quilt, so as soon as they arrive I want to work on the centre kimono block, I can't wait to start on the kimono block, that should be fun...
