New squares for the quilt's head


A dragon's tail in the larger pic... I'm running out of dragons and snake skins. There is this little chap, hand painted, and there are the iguana and other snakes who went to a party. Here, you see the squares still unquilted.
Maybe I'll do my next korak unquilted, because the double layers of the folded parts make it more sturdy than a quilt of traditional making. In this project, I like the quilted structure of the satin parts because they also have something reptilic.
I had intended to stick to the stash and not purchase new fabrics. Ha!
My wish to create according to my own ideas has tricked me. I just couldn't resist Benartex, "Palace". Would you?

Love all the Ïndonesian fabrics.
(It's always difficult what to decide when your "stash" is running out of the wanted material)
