Kwetzalcoatl
#6 February 2014 UFO
63" x 63"
My February 2014 UFO is finished.  I have changed the name from Kasbah to something more dragon appropriate.  Quetzalcoatl is a Mexican Dragon.  It's a humdinger to pronounce, but it works changing the Qu to Kw!  I enjoyed putting this design Oasis by Sally Frey together.  I plan to use the green star print for the binding once Kerry finishes the quilting...  What do you think about glow in the dark green thread for the quilting in a cute dragon pattern?  I think Zackary will learn quickly to like his glow in the dark dragon quilt, Kwetzalcoatl.

These next two projects are Joan's.  She participated in a HST Swap I coordinated in 2013 with 18 others.  Here is what Joan says about her projects:

"I have a top done with the half-square triangles (HSTs).  I started with a pattern called ‘Toast and Jam’ that used charms and a jelly roll and adjusted the sizes for the HSTs. It worked out to be about twin size – 60x84ish.

I had leftover triangles, so I put 4 together and tried a scrappy disappearing pinwheel pattern (video by Missouri Star Quilt Co. at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rgQd6asPQs).  I will have 12 blocks, so I am trying to figure out how to put them together."

 I really like Toast and Jam.  The borders really work great pulling in all the different colors of the HSTs.  Hope you have an opportunity to share your finished scrappy disappearing pinwheel.  You are off to a wonderful start!  Thanks for sharing with us.

I think glow-in-the-dark thread will be a wonderful touch for your dragon quilt!
Those pinwheel churndash blocks have been coming to my attention on several blogs. Hmmm, maybe I am supposed to be making some. : )
