New quilt for my boy



This is the first stages of the dragon applique quilt I am making for my eldest son. Its all beautifully ironed down ready for the hours it is going to take to satin stitch it. I have decided to use gold thread which should hightlight the dragon. Fingers crossed. He has been warned that he wont be receiving it until his birthday next year as I am going to enter it in the local show in July. I have been very slack over the last few months and have not done any craft work. Working full time, exercises and planning the 50th birthday seemed to take every spare minute. Hopefully I can get back in the swing now.
