Description: Meganeura is a genus of extinct insects from the Carboniferous period approximately 300 million years ago, which resembled the present day dragonfly

Meganeura is a genus of extinct insects from the Carboniferous period approximately 300 million years ago, which resembled and are related to the present-day dragonflies. With wingspans of up to 65 cm (2.1 ft), M. monyi is one of the largest known flying insect species

The design is all my own artwork. I used a photograph of a fossil as the basis for the Griffinfly shape, and was inspired by modern day dragonflies for the wing detail. Each line you see has been hand drawn by me. Please zoom in to the swatch view to see the detail. The background is the veining that you see on the Griffinfly's wings. Designed from the V2.1 colour profile.

Coordinates for this collection are here.

The previewer is blurring the image - so the actual design is shown below without blurring:

su_g

su_g says: Glad you added the photo of the print because it looked so muted in the design image (like the background was overwhelming it) but I can see that it printed beautifully with the dragonflies quite distinct. Lovely illustration and nice to see an unusual choice of animal!

shelley...

shelleymade says: Thanks Lori! I am really impressed at how they printed. I tested them on Kona, Sateen and the new Basic Cotton and all were really great. Can't wait to actually order some yardage and make something out of them...just have to decide what! :)
