Green Fantasy

I've been working on "that" green quilt between babysitting jobs.
My friend Nichole had a sweet baby girl Friday afternoon. Which left me with Hailey. She sure was a sweetie, but not very helpful in the sewing department!

But during some quiet moments, I pulled out that Green quilt. I did manage to get it sandwiched and did most of the straight line quilting. Who knows where this is going, but I'll figure it out when I get there.

I thought some swirly circles would look nice around the dragonfly. I do like. What I don't like? Metallic thread! It keeps breaking on me! But I've started and I need to continue. I think it'll look nice on the wings, if I even get the thread to work!

Any hints?

Patience awaiting advice in Paradise,

Your dragonfly and your quilting are gorgeous!

Oh wow. You never cease to amaze. Have you tried changing your needle? Silly I know, but sometimes it helps because the needles can develop burrs that can cause breakage.

No hints from me, just a lot of bowing to the MASTER on the other side of my screen here!!! You inspire me to get better!

Sweet! Very nice quilting. Sometimes changing your tension a little with help your thread not to keep breaking.

Your dragonfly is fantastic. Love the look of the swirls - I'm going to try that. Sorry have never used metallic thread.
