Back in 2001 my Mum bought a quilted wall hanging pattern she wanted to make for me. Well this week she finally finished it after two years of work!
The design is by Three Swans and its originally charted for the dragon to be done in shades of red, mine is in green. Its about 8 feet high and two feet wide and I just LOVE it!
Here's a close-up of the dragon's face.
This afternoon my Mum and I went out to The Country Quilter in Richmond for their annual quilt exhibit and sale. This year was our third year going. I have to say I was really impressed by the quits they had on exhibit compared to the Common Threads Quilt show we had gone to at the end of May. There was a lot of wonderful, and creative pieces on display. Of course we also had to shop! I came home with 3 fat quarters and two more 1/2 yards of dragon fabric!
The fat quarters are for that small pumpkin patch piece I stitched back during March Break. I plan on finishing it as a Cube-It. I couldn't make up my mind on what I wanted so I bought three!!! Now I just need to find the time to do the finishing... and find the right ribbon to embellish it.
And of course I can't go into a place selling fabric without looking for dragon fabric. I managed to score two more for the "collection". What I'm going to do with all of these pieces (and very different) of dragon fabric I don't know. But I just can't help collecting them!
Now I'm getting ready to sit down and work on Mon Coeur by Jeannette Douglas (should be another quickie).
