Love seeing your thought process and the dragon is awesome!
HawkFan I love the dragon too. It's on Craftsy, the dragon is my favorite applique so far.
I'm really considering getting the dragon pattern - you did a great job with it
I love how one idea leads to another and so on...I'll enjoy watching progress on this.
HawkFan I was surprised at how small the pattern was. This dragon is sitting on the yellow fat quarter and taking up most of it. This was after I had blown it up some, and then I redrew it with separate pieces. On the original pattern I couldn't see the pieces very well, pattern designer has an outline around all the pieces which is a little confusing. Then I blew it up again to 200% of my upscaled version.
Clairealex I am starting to think I am settling in on the design. I will purchase a little sword charm once I hit either the fabric/craft store or just find one on etsy. I marked quite a few little silver sword charms earlier. I am leaning against putting in a coat of arms just because the design wouldn't be balanced if I added it. Maybe a separate quilt?
That's good to know about the pattern so I won't be surprised if I do buy it. Thanks!!
