Dragon Quilt Check In

Today marks 3 weeks since I’ve started sewing hexies for the Dragon Quilt… and this is what I have so far:

It may not look like much… but there are 1,363 hexies made already ~ that averages 64 a day!!  For me, this is a fantastic pace… much faster than my squid quilt.  I hope I can keep it up!

These are all the basic colors of the quilt:  creamy offwhites for the body, bright greens for the belly, reds and oranges for the top scales, and  golden browns for the background.  Looking at this photo, I want to add more oranges to the reds and more blues to the bright greens to round out colors.  The most hexies are the golden browns.  I have 539 done, and still need 1,522 more. 

I’ve gone through all my scraps ~ so now I’m on the hunt for monochromatic patterns in these colors.  Fabric depot had some fat quarters that will work well ~ I’m interested to see how many hexies I can make from a whole fat quarter… although I prefer using smaller pieces so there isn’t too much of any one pattern.

Okay… I’m off to sew a few more!
