Dragon Scales on Dragon Tails!

This is a quilt for a special little boy who likes dragons.  I used half square triangles to create this "Dragon Scales on Dragon Tails" design.  I'm hoping it has enough of a "dragon-like" feel for him.  Little guys know what they want and aren't afraid to tell you when you don't hit the mark!
I think the dark background will be perfect as he drags it around and  uses it to make tents in his room.  Maybe mom won't have to wash it all the time! The background is a Cloud 9 Organic solid called Earth.  It's such a wonderful shade of brown.
Today starts a crazy week.  I'm heading back to Kansas City on Thursday to speak at the KCMQG, on Friday I'm teaching a Stitch and Flip triangle class at the Bernina store and Saturday, Harper's Fabrics is having a party for me and and my book, Quilting Modern.  I'm hoping to see and spend time with many of my KC family and friends.  Click the events tab for details of all of these happenings!

Thanks to everyone who came out to The Needle Shop on Saturday.  We had a great time talking quilts and buying fabric!  A special thanks to the staff at the shop for helping out!  The quilts will be on display there through Wednesday, so stop by and take a look and take "Quilting Modern" home with you!

Love the quilt as always. Get a little rest, and have fun this week. Wish I was close enough to join the events!

Oh, I think the little guy should have no problem with seeing your dragon scales on tails. What a wonderfully fun design idea!!!

I like it. Very boy-worthy. Maybe there needs to be a follow-up to the new Geared For Guys quilt design book which is geared for little boys (instead of big ones) :)

Saturday was a blast! It totally felt like a party. What a delight you are and what great staff and products at The Needle Shop. So fun!

That design is brilliant. I'm sure the little guy will have no trouble imagining he is sleeping with a dragon friend.

Kona black,snow, and white are a staple 'buy the bolt' for me - but I do love the mushroom!

Oh. This quilt is fantastic. Great colours! And wonderful essence of dragons! Yes, I think he'll love it. Will the label on the back be a dragon, just to put the icing on the cake?
