Default Never Laugh at Live Dragons, Bilbo...

This little (54X39ish) quilt started out as a whim. I asked my son to draw me a largish dragon that I could then put into a quilt. The drawing (on butcher paper) was folded up and stashed behind my desk for ages. I ran across it while cleaning and, since I was 'between' quilts, I decided to do something with the dragon.
I'm not totally happy with it (hence the title which is a quote from 'The Hobbit"). Creativity stalled out on me several times and I had to give myself a good old fashioned talking to...."Get upstairs and get that Dragon finished" I said.... And then I would find something else I needed to do. sooooo long story short, I did finally finish it and I'm happy that it is done!

My son loves dragons and if I gave him something that wonderful he would come unglued. It really is fantastic.

That's really quite nice, dragons are very special. Reminds me of one of my favorite bumper stickers- "Never meddle in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup!" I think this would be a great idea for a quilt for my awesome grandson.
