Puff's progress!



I have made some headway with my Puff the Magic Dragon cot quilt... and it is now fully pieced and ready for some applique leaves to be added to its borders... After all, old Puff can't "Wallow in the Autumn mist" without a few leaves still hanging around!

I used an applique design by Anne Gadsby Designs for the dragon, and the rest has evolved, and continues, to require some evolution! The borders are quite plain at the moment but I have a few ideas bubbling away.

I plan to have a fully completed top to show you by the end of this week!

Hugs! Vikki x

Hey Vikki! Puff the Magic Dragon was one of my favourite songs as a kid!! And you certainly are bringing ol' puff to life - can't wait to see his leaves so he can romp around! :0) I'm sure the finished quilt will bring much joy to the recpient, as well as his Mum ... and generations to come when it gets handed down with the story of how Aunty Vikki made it!! Bear Hugs! KRIS
