Dragonfly Quilt




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.
