Tacking “Dragonfly”

fate-and-dragonfly-quilt-back

I hang the quilts I make from a beam on my ceiling when I tack them.  (Tacking is my way of quilting.  I use a needle and yarn to tie the two layers of fabric and batting together.  This functions the same as a quilting stitch, although aesthetically it’s very different.)   To reach the top of the quilt I stand on a small stool.

This afternoon, as I was tacking the top of the quilt with maroon yarn, Fate came looking for me.
