    Dragon Quilt

    I bought the dragon fabric from Joann's. I fussy cut a 12 1/2" X 24 1/2" panel from the fabric. Then just kept adding borders until it reached the size I wanted. Backed it with black minkee.

    Did not have a recipient in mind when making the top. But, as I was laying it out on the floor to sandwich the layers together, my youngest son walked by, stopped, said WOW! and that's for me, right? Makes you feel good when your kids like your quilts.

    You did a great job. I love the colors and the dragon I can see why your son wants it.

    Striking and I'll bet its very cuddly. Great job.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    Great quilt, and great son, a perfect match. Hopefully he will keep it forever. My husband has a quilt that his grandmother made him, a long time ago. One of the pieces of fabric is falling apart, so we have it put up. It seems like that one fabric was older than the rest she used in the quilt. I was picking up pieces every morning, until it got to be too much. I told my husband, if we didn't put it away, it would mess up the rest of the quilt.

    Great quilt!

    My son wants a dragon quilt too. He's soon to be 47 but still likes dragons. Maybe I should watch for a panel or fabric similar to what you used. Or I may applique the dragon. I really need to start planning for it.

    Thanks for sharing your quilt.

    Thanks everyone!

    Scakes - LOL - I need to show your post to my DH. I showed him the pictures last night and when he read my post, he cracked up laughing. He said, you make our son sound like he's 12 years old! My youngest son is almost 23. When he left for the college dorm as a teenager, I made him a couple of dragon pillowcases from some dragon fabric I found at Wal-Mart. He came back and said "Mom, can you make more? All my friends want one!" So I wound up making about a dozen pillowcases.

    If you want I can look at the selvage and get the fabric info. You could see if your local Joann's has it. This fabric is normally $12.99 a yard. I used a coupon when I bought it.
