Wall hanging  finished size: 65 cm x 85 cm
This stunning Dragon quilt wall hanging was stitched with the needleturn applique technique, but it would also look great using other forms of applique.  

This full size applique pattern includes full instructions for the needleturn applique technique with optional embroidery embellishments.  To embellish the dragon, a sprinkling of glass seed beads, sequins, and french knots was added down his back.  More embroidery touches were added, such as a chevron on his tail, and fly stitch down the joins in the segments of the wings.  Special touches were also added in the quilting, such as extra flame shapes, and an all over stippling, which really made the dragon appear to fly out of the finished picture.

"DRAGON" FIRES PATTERN  IS $19.95 AUD 
and includes postage within  Australia.

We pride ourselves on providing colourful original designs, that are fun to do. This needleturn applique pattern uses a hand sewing technique, the pieces are not fused to the background, they are sewn on by hand, using a small hemming stitch. (Although, you can of course make it up in your method of choice, the instructions supplied are for that of the needleturn technique).   Using basic patchwork for the background and borders, the wall hanging is then appliqued. We like to add optional embroidery using bead embellishments on our quilt patterns to add an extra creative touch. Our patterns are ideal for textile art backgrounds, as the optional embroidery, can be as much or as little as you like. Finally the finished wall hanging is quilted,  often using a random stippled quilting. For beginners we have a how to applique section in our website.
