Dragonflies in Flight
This stunning quilt is evocative of a forest, as dragonflies ascend toward the sunlight streaming through branches overhead. Despite its complex appearance, this quilt is quite achievable. The mystery lies in strip-piecing 3 palettes of 2.5 inch strips to form the colorful backdrop for the dragonflies’ ascent.
Let your imagination soar as the magic unfolds . . .
Dragonflies in Flight is the first in the “Whole Is Greater” series of designs by Cat Nix. What is the ‘Whole is Greater’ series about? I proudly proclaim: I’m a fabri-holic. I share the opinion of many quilters that, when it comes to fabric . . . more is definitely MORE! The more fabrics I bring into in a quilt design, the happier I become! Through the marriage of design and color, the viewer is invited to look beyond the beauty of the composition as a whole to explore the subtle nuances that lie within the quilt itself. The composition encompasses every patch, every stitch; from center to edge. Dragonflies in Flight is a stunning illustration of the “Whole” being “Greater than” the sum of its parts.
A Quilt is not a quilt until it quilted. Many, many thanks to Shawn Leighton & Cathy Upchurch for making “Dragonflies in Flight” look so good!
