Meadow Dancer and Garden Delight

Did I ever show you this AAQI Priority quilt? It is "Meadow Dancer". Here are the specs:
Materials/Techniques: I used a vintage fabric panel, hand embroidery with DMC floss and perle cotton, and a fused butterfly, then machine quilted.
Artist Statement: Legend says that if one follows the Meadow Dancer, the secret of protection from any enemy will be found.

This next one is the last of that vintage panel and the last AAQI Priority Quilt that I will make. This has been such a fulfilling project and I am so glad that I have been able to participate.
Materials/Techniques: Vintage garden panel, machine thread work, hand embroidery, silk ribbon embroidery, 3D fabric embellishment, embellished with metal charms and hand quilting.
Artist Statement: A garden is always a delight especially when dragonflies dance among the flowers. There are three dragonflies on this quilt, can you find them?
