This is Astrid's Dragonfly quilt  which she will get for her 15th birthday, 2/2/12. She has to wait until then because the other five grandchildren were all 15 when they got theirs. The reason for that is Leighton's the oldest and he was 15. He and his 2 sisters and 1 brother are all 2-21/2 years apart in age, and their cousin, Astrid's sister is less than 6 months younger than the 4th granddaughter! Astrid loves nature and is very artistic. She asked for a dragonfly theme because she thinks they're great. I found a wallhanging titled "Over the Fields" by Laurie J. Shifrin which I was able to turn into a bed quilt. Astrid picked out the batik colors for the dragonflies, told me she wanted them flying in a blue sky, through a marsh. This is the finished product, which she hasn't seen. She has seen pictures of it in progress.

I love dragon flies, and these are the best I have seen in a quilt. Are they your own design?
