Show Your Wings…


Show Your Wings Logo 300x300

Today is the start of the Show Your Wings Blog Hop hosted by Carol at Just Let Me Quilt. The Blog Hop is full of wonderful quilters all week long. Of course the theme was to make a project that includes something with wings.

IMG_7122I decided to make this 5″ x 15″ wall hanging called Butterfly and Dragonflies. I miniaturized the well known Dragonfly block down to 5″ finished. I also shrunk the well known butterfly block down to 3″ finished and put a 1″ border all the way around.

My fabric choices were all by Art Gallery and were mostly Maureen Cracknell fabrics For the quilting I did simple diagonal, straight line quilting.


Be sure to check out all the other bloggers throughout the week for lots of winged inspiration!
