If you've been following my blog you saw a past post about my Hot Flash Quilt. When I took it to my friend Donna to long arm on her APQS Millenium, the idea came up to put a Dragon on it, breathing flames down onto the quilt. The entire design was done using YLI varigated thread in yellow/orange/red. After looking at it, we decided it needed some green to help bring the detail of the dragon out on the front (you could see it fine on the back as it is solid red). So, I borrowed some green Sulky thread and came home and went over her wonderful design using green. I really think it helped to make the dragon pop.
Now my dilemma is........... do I need to add a little metallic to him to bring him out further? Donna and I are talking about adding some crystals at various points in the flames. She graciously sent some home with me so I could lay them out and play.
Do dragons need bling? Let me know what you think.
