The Earth is Fragile...

The stitching for the dragons is now complete. I thumbed through alphabet chart books for what seemed like hours the other night and just couldn't pick out a font that I liked for the lettering. The next morning I had the bright idea to go with the funky style letters of Helga Mandl. I added the little waves to represent water since I left out the dragon of water. So now it has the whole Earth, Air, Fire and Water theme. I have some dark green fabric that I plan to use as the border around it and make it into a wall hanging. I'm going to use this technique to make a pseudo quilt-sleeve and insert a wooden slat in the back for hanging: Quilt Sleeve Instructions



Feels good to have the stitching done. Now I'll move on to a Love Quilts Square for a Wild West-themed quilt.
