Show Your Wings

Posted on: February 21st, 2019 by Lorna McMahon

I’m sew excited to be able to share a story about my wings with you today!

This is my Little Dragon wall hanging. It was so much fun to make! I chose to make the smaller version. And backed it with this feather print I made myself on Spoonflower 100 years ago. And I added corner tabs for hanging.


“Little Dragon” quilted wall hanging
finished at 20″ x 27″


ordered from Ikaprint.



The Little Dragon pattern is now available in my shop here.

The block finishes at 23″ x 16″ OR 46″ or 32″, plus border.


Today is the one year anniversary of moving into my new home and life. It has been a challenging year. But I am very, very happy. Thanks to all of my friends for the love and support!!!!

Little Dragon represents the new and improved 2019 me.

  • bold
  • fiery
  • adorable
  • prickly
  • edgy
  • rugged
  • free to fly
It is quite likely, that I will be at this very moment, facing the ex in our settlement meeting today. Writing this post was perfect timing because, in preparation, I really need to concentrate on channeling my inner little dragon.

    Very cute dragon. I think we'd all have a little inner dragon inside us. It gives us the little spark we need sometimes.

  3. Dorothy says:

    Congratulations on your year of \”freedom\” and self growth. It's been a pleasure to watch from the sidelines. And speaking from expeirence, we all need to carry that inner dragon throughout our life's journey. Good luck with the settlement hearing

I thought of the Disney movie, Mulan, and the tiny dragon who did awesome things even while being scoffed by a few. You have said such amazing things, your affirmations are wonderful. Your color choices and latest pattern are radiant. You are my hero.

  36. Suze says:

    Nice, adorable quilt. I hope you are fine with your new life. I had a traumatic childhood – I'll leave it there. Then I married a man who was an alcoholic and I knew nothing about that – I never saw him drunk. He sure had the controlling behaviors. Then he walked out after 23 years. With all that I've suffered with depression for years and I still do. I just started this week seeing a psychiatrist to try to get medications in that arena in better shape. It's a journey. Luckily, my children were 18 and 20, so I didn't have to deal with my ex. He just came back into my life last August and I let him turn it upside down again. There's a reason I have a boundary that the kids and I don't talk about him. I don't even like to go to the side of town where he lives. I don't even want to see any part of him. How can we go from loving someone to this? It's amazing. I haven't pieced a quilt since my second husband died 5 1/2 years ago. Trauma certainly takes a toll on us – whether we let it or not – it happens. We are fighters and it will get better. I tell you this not as a pity party – to tell you there is a hope and a future. You are an amazing, talented, beautiful lady. Chin up and go for it!

  40. Kathleen says:

    I have been behind in commenting due to Quilt Con, but kept seeing this pop up in my feed. I do love this quilt pattern and it was perfect for the hop! Thanks for sharing.

  41. I love the dragon, Lorna! I've bought the pattern, so now I just have to find the time to make him 🙂 I hope things went well for you in the settlement meeting and I'm so proud of all you've been able to do in your new life. Congratulations on being the bold, fiery, adorable woman you are!
