I was trying for a Dragon, but he looks more like a general monster :)

Raw-edged applique with an extra layer of batting for the face. The shear fabric was edged by burning. Fabric paint was added to deepen the shadows and blend the base of the horns.

Raw-edge applique, thread painted, and free motion quilted 16 X 16"

Yes, it's a monster for sure!  It's the old Greek Minotaur -- Perfect!  I love it!

Thanks for the comments :D

tiny3: Glad the kids like it. I would love to see what it inspires!

ConBon: Yes it does look like a Minotaur. I think it's the horns.

Now here's a handsome fellow... beautifully done.  Love the fabric you have as the white of his eyes... very nice.  And his horns really look like they truly belong.

He may not be a dragon but I don't think he is a general monster either... something from a Greek myth, I'm thinking... a big bull... like the kind Hercules mastered as one of his labours.
