Along with many other parents today, it was just a bit harder to drop my kids off at school today. I've shed more than a few tears over the week-end, along with many people in our country and around the world. I think we're all trying to find answers. We're all holding our kids a little closer now.
I found some fabric in my stash, that I had overlooked before, while planning the top, that had, yes, dragonflies on it! After kicking myself, I decided to use it for the back. It just happened to match very well.
As tempting as it was to stipple the whole thing, I just had to define the dragonflies a bit more, and am thrilled at how they turned out. More and more I'm getting just as much satisfaction out of the quilting as I do the piecing!
Working on this quilt as well as reflecting on the events over the week-end reminds me of the most important things in the world... life, the innocence or children, health and well being, both physically and mentally...
