Thank you ladies for the lovely photos on the blog and those little quilts arriving in my letterbox -- better than Christmas!!! I have them pinned up on the design wall drawing comments from everyone.
We often see dragonflies along the Sturt River, Coromandel Valley where we walk the dogs. The dragonflies' bright flashes of blue and green catch the eye as they dart over the water and grasses.
Have to put my thinking cap on for Medieval -- wow.

An abstract depiction of the wings of a dragonfly, up close.
I have a little instrument, pictured below, described by the makers ,Van Cort, as a “Dragonfly”. It has a multi prism lens, similar to a kaleidoscope, through which you supposedly see a dragonfly’s view of the universe. I pieced my little quilt with this in mind.
The quilt was photographed and ready to post on the blog when, quite by accident, I was tidying my sewing room and a little piece of dragonfly fabric fell on the floor – of course it had to go on to the quilt too.
