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!
