On gossamer wings

 Stitched by Margie

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.
