Hexie Dragon Top… Finished!

hexie dragon top finished

WooHoooo!!!

It’s still not the best photo… but I think the colors are correct.  I’ve been waiting for a sunny day with helpers at the same time, and it just hasn’t worked out until today.  Even so, it’s hard to get a good photograph of something this big and flowy. Our feet are left in for size perspective 😉 

… so what do you think??  I am loving it!  Is it okay to say that about your own work?  Hope not  ~ after a committed year of stitching, it feels pretty awesome to have it finished.

 I’ve been contemplating just how I’m going to quilt this.  At the last PMQG meeting, Angela Walters was there and spoke to us about free motion quilting.  She was very inspiring and I loved her quilting work!  She likes dense quilting… and so do I!  Even though she uses a longarm, and I’m working with my basic Singer ~ I think with the right set up and practice, I can quilt this well enough. We’ll see.  I need to think on that for a while before jumping in. 

In the meantime, I’m starting some other projects and I’m pretty excited to start something new… and a little sad to see the end of this one!

ps:  If you’d like to see the beginning of this project, go here to my old blog archives.

    Your Dragon quilt is amazing. Thanks for documenting the amount of time it took, as I am working on a gargoyle. The Squid is also awesome.
