Dragon Quilt Start!

Dragon Hexie Quilt Pattern Design Layout

I’ve had the idea for a dragon hexie quilt even before I finished my squid quilt.  After a long summer, I finally have the design finished!  What do you think?  It’s just a rough idea of what actual patterned fabric will look like, and I may change color families as I go ~ but it’s a good start. 

This quilt will need at least 4,000 1/2″ hexagon pieces which is a much bigger project than the squid at 1,432 hexies.  Am I crazy????  Maybe… but I really miss having something to work on wherever I go ~ and honestly, finishing a hand-pieced quilt is pretty satisfying!  I ordered some of the pre-cut paper pieces today ~ that means I will start sewing in about a week. 

The dragon image was chosen because 2012 is the year of the dragon ~ my hope is to be able to finish by the end of 2012…. we’ll see how that goes ~ wish me luck and quick callouses!

    Oh dang! I really thought it would be that cute caterpillar you took a picture of a while back (with the monofiliment fishing line, of course).

    Your squid turned out so fantastic, you would be crazy NOT to make your dragon.

    I do think your hexie projects are a bit insane, but in the best possible way.
