Japanese dragonflys

Posted on April 21, 2012 at 4:21 PM
This great quilt has some gorgeous Japanese themed fabrics both on the front and on the back of the quilt.  My customer Ann chose a dragonfly design and copper thread to compliment her already beautiful quilt top.  I love her narrow 1/4 inch red sashing.  Quite often I use red in my quilt tops, (in fact I can't think of many which do not have red in them)
The Japanese believe that a dragonfly symbolizes summer and autumn and is admired and respected, the Samurai use it as a symbol of power, agility and victory.
In China, people associate the dragonfly with prosperity, harmony and as a good luck charm.  Amongst Native Americans, it is a sign of happiness, speed and purity.
I think it is a fun design on the right quilt, and this quilt suited it very very well.

Thanks Kay, the back is great too I agree. I love those blues on the front too.
