Dragonfly Wall Hanging - Finished !

At last, I've made some great progress with my wall hanging and I guess I could almost call it finished.
It's a very 'busy' piece and it's knowing when to stop.  I think it has enough on it now and it pretty much resembles the picture I had in my head.
I took this on a lovely sunny day but had still to add the little flowers in the bottom right corner. 
Click on photos for extra close ups.

                                            Close up detail of 3D flowers.

I worked some hand embroidery on the flowers and dragonfly.

                                           Close up - bottom left corner.

                                           Top right corner.

                                          Beading on Dragonfly

                                           Hand embroidery and machine quilting detail.

Last to be added, were these little flowers which I made from tiny Suffolk puffs.

  I'm really pleased with how it turned out, in fact my brother and sister have already tried to get me to part with it, but after all that hard work I think I will enjoy it myself for a while.  I will pass it on eventually ( maybe!).
This week I will be working on my Bird of Paradise applique.  It is almost ready for quilting and I can't wait to let you see it.
Have a great week whatever you are up to and thanks for stopping by my blog.

This is beautiful. Well done! I just love using beads in my work-there is so much of interest in your quilt. You're right to keep it so you can enjoy looking at it for a while. It's always hard to part with them when you're really pleased with the colours, design etc.

Thank you ladies for all your kind words. It means a lot to get some feedback - really appreciate it.

Just linked over here from Paul's post. I had to tell you that I had gone to The Quilting Gallery before reading Paul's blog and had voted for your quilt without knowing anything about it. It is incredible! You have done an amazing job!

I love your little quilt so much that it is my wallpaper for my desktop on my PC!. I love looking at the detail every time I sign on to my computer. My 2 yr old grandson loves the dragonfly!
