DRAGONFLY BLOSSOMS AND GOSSAMER WINGS Posted on 02 Jan 22:43 , 0 comments

A sneak preview of a pattern to be published later this spring in the AQS journal American Quilter with closeups of the quilting designs from the Gossamer Collection. First you see the border design Gossamer Wings and after that Gossamer Block filling in the pieced Blossom block.

 I re-sized Gossamer Block to fill an empty space around  1161 Gossamer Blossom (since retired). You can see how I used 1162 Gossamer Petals to complete the star sections of the pattern. I designed Gossamer Arcs specifically for this pattern to tie the star together and to look "flighty" as the dragonflies flit from here to there.

And there is the closeup of 1162 Gossamer Petal from the center of the star blocks.
