Start the quilting engine

Here we go. I tried to get the basic linear stuff quilted in before I got goin' on the serious free motion stuff. The quilting pattern was originally patterned after a web search photo of a clear winged dragonfly where the dark black veins where clearly evident. Click photos for detail views.

The goal is to make the right and left sets of wings at least somewhat similar. Thats where the earlier marking is important
You'll notice how strongly the lime green thread contrasts next to the dark body.

Don't be afraid to ink over your thread to create needed dimension/ shadow realism
