Members of Delicate Stitchers each made a paper pieced dragonfly for a quilted wall hanging to be presented to our sister guild in Iran.
The wall hanging was put together by Marian Eason... She designed the center block. It was machine quilted by Bonnie Crysdale. Can you see the quilted dragonflies?
Members of our guild pose with the finished quilt! It will soon be on its way to Iran.

Nifty "Traveling in Circles Sewing Tote"
Here are a couple of photos of my Traveling in Circles Sewing Tote, along with the link to the blog where the instructions are located. My daughter says: "This is more complicated than it should be - so please warn everyone to read the instructions all the way through before cutting fabric! I missed a couple of steps by not pre-reading, and had to do a little reverse sewing." The instructions are also quite lengthy. The finished tote is 8 inches in diameter. There are also a couple of versions for the lid. Christie appliquéd felt for needles, but the instructions show 2 different versions for zippered compartments in the lid.
