Dragonflies and Flowers

This is another one of Janet’s quilts that I was asked to quilt. Janet's Dragonfly Quilt 2

She wanted dragonflies in the pieced blocks and flowers in the teal blocks with teal thread (I used Floriani Thread on this sweet quilt.

Here is a close-up of the back showing each design:

I really like how they have similar elements to unify the design, but yet are different enough for interest. I got the idea for the design from Judi Madsen’s book, “Quilting Wide Open Spaces.” I’ve had the book for a while and I remembered she featured a dragonfly on her cover so I knew it would be perfect for this application.

I put smaller flowers in the border to follow the theme:
