In case you are new to the world of large applique designs, let me fill you in. A large applique design is one which needs 2 or more hoopings, with the joining completed as you stitch, in the hoop. The beauty of my large applique designs is you can quickly create a 3D Animal Design much larger than your hoop, and then add them to quilt blocks, reading pillows or pretty much any item as you like.
This stunning Dragon is created in nine segments - joined completely in-the-hoop like a jig-saw, so while there are a few hooping’s, there is no awkward aligning and comes together quite fast.
This Dragon is going on the wall in my lounge, so I used two very similar purple colors and threads. But you could choose to use more contrasting colours.
Imagine using this large design on a Quilt for a Lover of Fantasy Designs. We used Mylar on the Wings and Gem Stone but that is optional.
