Design Wall Monday - July 25

I spent Saturday taking my son on a tour of a couple of universities, as he has a big decision to make this year.  Thank goodness for air conditioning in the car.  It was a steamy day, but nice and clear for driving which was good.  The trip ended up twice as long as expected, as we added a second destination half-way through, so not much quilting was accomplished on Saturday.  I made up for that on Sunday.  Got a head start in the morning, before the heat set in too deeply, and then it cooled off again in the evening, so the sewing room was again tolerable.  Looks like the heat has broken for a couple of days, so hopefully more sewing is in the near future.

My design wall this week has some progress which I'm very happy with. The dragon is complete, and the blue quilt is starting to take shape.  I'll have to find a way to get a better picture of the dragon.

  2. Terrific dragon. I love the contrast between the three different sets, the delicate and precise pale blue stars, the the lively green and white and then the deep, bold flowing dragon.
