It’s less than 3 weeks until the start of my
Dresden Quilt Workshop Quilt-Along
Are you getting ready?
I have some friends that are anxious to start.
If you already have your fabrics you could start now by spraying
& ironing all of them with Mary Ellen’s Best Press.
If you look in Dresden Quilt Workshop, pages 9 & 12,
you’ll see why I love it & how I use it.
Next, if you’re using the same fabrics as I did, Jen Kingwell’s Circulus & Lollies Sweet,
(I still have a limited number of fabric kits available on my website)
I suggest you cut a 3″ strip of each of the stripe fabrics.
I did this when I started my quilt and then hung each of them by a tiny hanger so that I could see each of the stripe prints.
I didn’t want to keep using the same print over & over and neglect others.
There are 48 different stripes!
I just happen to have these tiny hangers on the notions page of my website.
I’m all about having fun while I quilt… and a little bit of organization goes a long way!
That should keep you busy for a while
& you’ll become more familiar with all of your fabrics too.
And, you’ll be able to use the 3″ strips in your final border,
so don’t think it’s a waste of fabric.
It’s a win-win!!! Trust me!
And now, would you like to participate in a give-away?
A fabric give-away?
A Moda Fabric give-away?
These are fat 1/8’s (9″ x 22″).
The very talented Lissa Alexander of Moda sent these for me to share with you!
Perhaps you’d like to add to this bundle & make a Dresden Quilt Workshop sampler with us?
To be eligible for a chance to win the fat 1/8 bundle,
go to the top of this page
& leave a comment answering one of the reasons or ways that I use Mary Ellen’s Best Press.
(Remember I mentioned above that the info is on pages 9 & 12 in Dresden Quilt Workshop.)
If you don’t have a copy of the book, go get one!
They’re on my website if you local shop doesn’t have them.
I will give you time to comment

Just Keep Sewing…
