The Quilt with the Dragon Tattoo by Nancy Arseneault 2014

Recommended Posts

Will now attempt to load photos of my new quilt: The Quilt with the Dragon Tattoo from the Tucson Quilt Fiesta last weekend.  My record with adding photos is not too good…hope this will work.

 

When my husband became obsessed with THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO books & movies, I collaborated with tattoo artist Stephanie Davis to include my favorite quilting motifs (feathers, spirals, dots) into an original drawing of a Chinese dragon.  Then I turned the black & white drawing into this quilt.  It is machine appliquéd and was quilted on my APQS George machine with feathers, several traditional Sashiko patterns and some scribbling or thread painting.  Silk, metallic, cotton, rayon and polyester threads in all sizes (12 to 100) were used in the decorative stitching and quilting.  Started in January 2013, completed January 2014.

This looks fantastic.

So will it also be one of three like the books?

I'd say Wow but I has already been used.  OH, MY!  What a doozy of a quilt!  Now for the questions:  Is that needle-turn applique or raw edge?  Did you zig-zag over every little bit of the edges of applique?  Is any of the color pen-and-ink or is it ALL fabric?  You are such an artist!!!!
