Dragonflies

Free Motion Quilting Pattern

Dragonflies

Dragonflies are magical creatures and I'm so fond of them in my childhood. Being born and raised in a farm, I loved chasing them even if they're difficult to catch. I was quite fascinated with their colorful bodies and delicate wings.

Because dragonflies have distinct shape and form, they're actually easy to draw in one line. First, I make an anchor point where I start making the elongated wings on both sides. The anchor point becomes the starting and end point of every parts of the dragonfly, so the thread builds many layers on this point, making it a bit bumpy. After the wings, I create a small circle for the head and add small antennas. I go back to the anchor point, then create the elongated body.
