Flight of the Dragonfly

I have now completed my 2nd and last Dragonfly quilt.  Flight of the Dragonfly sister quilt to  Dance of the Dragonfly These quilts are for my Niece and Daughter.  For Christmas this year if your related your most likely getting a quilt.  I have done a mix of Rag Quilts and Pieced quilts.  The more Pieced quilts I make the more I love them.

It was funny yesterday I was showing my brother the progress I have made so far on his queen sized rag quilt and I was also showing him this quilt that I was getting ready to quilt (though he can not believe I stopped working on his quilt to work on this quilt.  Oh well his loss and my gain.  Any way he made the comment that he could afford more material and that he might want me to make him yet another quilt.  LOL I think I will make every one in the family's Christmas this year as we have not had new quilts in the family in years.

Today will also be one one the first times that I will have more then one post for the day I wanted to get this quilt in for my Friday Link up can not let you all think that I can go a week and only finish one quilt.  So here you have it I am not totally slacking for the week.  Don't look too close at my quilting the lines are not straight, but the puckering was less this time around.  I am learning each and every quilt what not too do and basting the quilt (yes trying to use the cool new words I have been learning) is not yet my specialty.

It looks great! I find basting to be the hardest thing to do (and my poor knees! ugh) There are quilt stores that will teach long arm quilting and thus rent time on their machines for you to use. It is awesome since no basting is required! I do that whenever I have a large project.

At the rate your going you will have all your gifts done and dusted well before December :) As your doing straight line quilting you can eliminate little puckers by using a walking foot, its a great foot attachment if you dont already use one :)

Looks good to me! You are an amazing quilting machine. =)

Both of your Dragonfly quilts are beautiful. Unfortunately, basting never gets any funner. A necessary part of machine quilting, but definitely not the best part.
