Daydreams revealed

I've posted peeks of this quilt before in various photoshopped colours, but here's the whole thing in true colour now is has been received. Daydreams:
As I mentioned in my previous post, I went to visit Joy and Madelyn today. Of course, I didn't just deliver the group quilt; I also designed one for her myself. I used one of my favourite techniques of taking just a few blocks, and arranging and 'colouring' then symmetrically to give a medallion effect, where the original blocks are hard to distinguish among the overall pattern.
I ordered way more turquoise fabrics than I would need, but had to have choice when I was finalising the design - it was hard narrowing-down the selection!
I rather like the way the corner section shown above resembes a dragonfly, mirroring the feature fabric.
The obligatory bridge photo, with an overgrown background!
Best wishes for a wonderful life and pleasant Daydreams, Madelyn!
