Hi!  I don't post on Craftster near as much as I should or would like to.. my mother just finished this quilt a few weeks ago.  She paper pieced all of the dragons using a pattern from Paper Panache.  I think it's beautiful, but it took her a long time!  This was for my dad, who loves dragons and the color blue..

Lovely, and I really like that the quilting is like dragon scales.  The amount of time and work is beautifully evident!
