What's Your Sign Results

Here's a picture of the zodiac quiltlet I made for the "What's Your Sign" challenge. It's a gryphon and obviously not a traditional sign of either the traditional or the Chinese zodiac. I just couldn't be traditional, LOL. I wanted to make a fantasy creature and thought about a unicorn, but then I thought of other creatures and the gryphon came to mind. I knew at once it was perfect! I was born under the sign of Leo in the Year of the Rooster and since the gryphon combines the lion with a bird (an eagle) it seemed very appropriate. I'm very pleased with it.

Techniques used: raw edged fused applique, hot-fix crystals and metallic thread quilting.
