    start of a wall hanging

    I love dragon pix, so I bought this traditional dragon thru Amazon. this is as far as I have gotten with it. I am considering whether I want any further borders. Of course, I used the traditional folded ribbon for one border, but the designed the cornerstones.

    unfortunately, the progress was not quick. I had to do the simple, inner border 3 times because I kept messing it up. the complex border went more rapidly....go figure.

    That's beautiful! We love dragons too and I have seen those panels before. Since it's a wall hanging, I think the size is perfect. Where are you planning on hanging it?

    Here's a pic of one that I made that my son insisted was his before I could finish it: http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...t-t218264.html

    Wow! Beautiful! Love the fabrics you used with the panel...just perfect. I'd be tempted to stop w/o more borders.

    thank you all. alienquilter, thanks for sharing your dragon quilt. I have decided to move on to quilting it with no added borders.
