What’s on my Design Wall March 21, 2011

Posted by Pam in KC in designwall, Dragonflies.

This past weekend I worked on my Dragonfly quilt.  It still needs borders, but I need sleep more.  After work I’ll get the rest of the borders on and perhaps get the backing pieced.

Isn’t this fabric perfect for the backing?

I’ve got an appointment in Butler on the 27th to quilt this top, so I’ve got to practice drawing dragonflies.  While I’m doing that, I’ll ponder thread color.  I have a spool of King Tut #901 Nefertiti which is Green, Fuchsia, Yellow, and Orchid.  This is the thread that I used to quilt No Blue Geese in My Tropical Garden.  It’s missing orange and turquoise.  So, I wonder about using # 978 Rosetta Stone which is a Light Silver, Charcoal and Dark Silver – but the Superior website says this is out of stock, so that may solve the problem for me.   There will be an outer black border and the binding will be black as well.

That is a terrific quilt. I love the little spots of color in the b&w. And your backing is perfect. Be sure to show us your drawings prior to seeing the finished product.

That is a great quilt – I think Imight be bold and quilt it with the Nefriti thread. How pretty!
