Forget-Me-Nots and Dragonflies

Bernice sent me these two quilt tops to finish up for her.  She gets Hobbs Polydown batting and likes things lightly quilted.

The first one is a sweet forget-me-knot design, that I just free-handed some flowers inside her own.  Lots of fun! 

The second one was made up of many different dragonfly fabrics.  I started out meandering loops and dragonflies in the big, open blocks, then using the fabric for inspiration, did the border with dragonflies and ferns, and then I accentuated the pinwheels.  I might have gotten carried away and over-quilted it abit for her taste, but I'm sure she will be pleased as the polydown is such a soft, fluid batting for a fluffy polyester!
