“Dragon”, Protecting The Deepest Part Of Myself


I can’t help but feel that this quilt came directly out of my experience in Bellydancing over the past week.  I feel like it embodies of the change that occurred in me.  Moving from fear and panic to a place of acceptance of who I really am.

When I sewed the dragons on either side of the deep purple and red velvet, I felt as if they were protecting something.  Now I see that something as the deepest part of myself. That which is layered with life experiences but safe in my core.

I still have to back and tack my Dragon quilt,  I’ll get to that next week.

I hope you can see the subtle variation in color of the velvet in this detail of Dragon.(easier to see in person then a photo)  A red strip spans across it like a vibration.

  1. This is gorgeous, and not only do you have dragons, but the prints at the top make it look very castle-like!

    1. I’d never heard of a Thangka before Patty, but looking it up, I see that my quilt fits so well in the description of one. Thank you for letting me know about them. And I noticed that about the sun light on the photo too. I was going to close the curtain when I first saw it, but then realized how perfect it was.
