Dragonflies in the Air

Here are photos of my latest quilt. I started with a very simple variation of Birds in the Air and some scraps I wanted to use up. I wasn't too thrilled with the results until I stenciled some dragonflies in the light spaces. Stenciling is fun and easy! I made the stencils myself using freezer paper. I used each stencil 4 times before there wasn't enough stick to adhere.


I quilted the triangles in the ditch then free-motion quilted flight paths for the dragonflies in the light areas.
