Pattern Details

36-1/2" x 36-1/2" Precise tracing, cutting, and piecing are the secrets to making this stunning Dragon Tails table topper. But, don’t worry. If you’ve never pieced oddly shaped pieces, just refer to the tutorial on The Quilt Pattern Magazine’s website for help. Requiring only 4 fabrics, this project is also a great way to experiment with color. Make the tail from three analogous colors or try a triadic color scheme. Throw in a neutral for the background and you’re ready to go. Don’t limit yourself to just this color scheme which emphasizes the tails. The star within a hexagon design lends itself to many other presentations as well! A blank Dragon Tails template is included at the end of the pattern. Get out those colored pencils and have fun designing your own!
