The Dragon


Here is a section of the original dragon fabric. I copied this dragon in a bit less detail. It's less clear when there is only the outline. I guess I could try to put on the scales. I'm not sure that I'm that advanced in machine quilting though.


Yesterday I cut out and sewed together a few hexagons for my next Kaleidoscope. There is a LOT of sewing to do before you start with the arrangement so I like to do a few at a time while working on other projects. It's too boring for me to do them all at once.

I always love making the hexagons, seeing how they'll look. The actual layout part, that's where I bog down...

What a different hexagon quilt this one will be. I can't quite tell -- are you using all flowered fabrics?

the dragon quilt looks awesome mum! wow!

About the dragon - if you do scales (which will act as a type of stippling) you'll probably be unhappy with the density of the quilting or it will distort the borders unless you just go to town all over the place.

Maybe if you did an "echo" - I see in the original fabric, most of the outlines of the major lines of the dragon are double. Is that something you would be happy with?

I'll agree with T. Sometimes too much is just too much. The echoing sounds like a great idea if you're wanting a little "more."

Looks like you've got a pretty terrific start on yet another project!

Love your hexagons. Looking forward to watching the progress of another great quilt.
