The NEEDLECHASERS OF CHEVY CHASE located in Chevy Chase, MD present their 2014 Raffle Quilt titled “Dragons Tails”. Our 2014 NCCC Quilt Show “Once Upon a Quilt” will be held in Kensington MD on Oct. 17 and 18, 2014.
“Dragon Tails” was based on the design "Borealis," used by permission from Aardvark Quilts(TM.) The blocks were drafted for paper piecing by Deborah Lamb-Mechanick in two different versions. One set has points coming off one of the curves and the other has curves without points. A very successful workshop involving over 50% of our membership was held to teach and make the blocks. They were then assembled by Donna Radner and Jan Gavin and the quilt was machine quilted by Marina Baudoin."
