    I finished this ages ago, but my computer got a virus. This is the quilt I made for my Mum. She asked for a dragon design so I adapted a cross stitch design to make this. The squares are 2" square and this has 900 squares in the main bit.

    My mum likes it, it's already on her bed!

    Cool! This is a great pattern for a kids room too. I like that you added the prairie points on the edge to give it additional color along the border. You should sell this design.

    Thanks so much for the design idea. I use to do a lot of cross stitch. Have kind of lost interest in it since picking up quilting. Might have a surprise some day for several family members. Too many of they like dragons. Now just to designs for about 6 different ones. K
