Dragonfly

I gave myself a goal to finish as many project in December as I possibly can and I ‘m so pleased with what I’ve achieved. I prepared two hangings for Olivier, so that he can now cut out fabrics, paint it etc before it will land on my pile again. I have also started to quilt my sister’s quilt … do you still remember that red, white and black Lost at sea blocks with Mariner’s Compass in the middle – I have just checked the date and yes it is just over two years …

Well this Dragon fly wall hanging I’m going to show you today I have been blogging about even before my sister’s quilt, you can see it here. The thing is … I gave birth to Balthazar just shortly after that and moved house twice since then … so that explains a lot why it was sitting and waiting for so long.

Nevertheless it’s finished now!!! I’m so very pleased with it! It was a class with Barbara Weeks, (to see her website click here) which I took with my mum, just to have some fun together. It’s done using a mosaic technique – Pieces of fabric with bondaweb on the back are stick to the background fabric.

I loved the part of creating the picture, but then I took it under the machine and that amount of bondaweb was breaking the thread and I got so fed up with it I moved onto new project and that was it! But now I decided to finish it with waking foot instead of free quilting one and it was so much easier, and faster and most importantly it’s FINISHED! And I’m loving it!!!

I have also added my favorite piped binding, which is giving it lovely finish!
