I started The Dragon in 2012 and worked on him for several months. Then I was completely stymied when I couldn't figure out how to do the applique.
Now this is my new attempt to "pin" down Mr. Dragon. I am adding pins to every tip and join. It takes forever to put all those pins in but I really want to finish this quilt. Everything is on the background except the additional fire; you know, "fire breathing dragon." If I can get this top done it will push me to finish quilting the quilt that has been on the frame forever. And maybe I will finally get on a quilting roll.
As you can see I have two helpers who are overseeing this work. They are really taskmasters and make a lot of noise when I slack off. With their help I should be ready to return to the machine applique and heading to the quilting frame. Yay!! Gari
