Dresden Quilt Workshop Quilt-Along Week #6

Week #

Please keep posting & sending me pics of your blocks!

If you’re not part of my Facebook group, Dresden Quilt Workshop,

head over there & sign up so you too can share & be inspired.

This week we will refer to

Argyle Retreat quilt, page 31.

I absolutely love the feathers that Tamara quilted into the alternate blocks!

This week we will be making 1 Argyle Retreat block.

Just make 5 Tiny Dresden blocks,

and sew them into 1 Argyle Retreat block as directed.

I have to warn you,

some of these blocks took me longer to decide which fabrics to use & where

THAN TO ACTUALLY MAKE THE BLOCK!!!

let’s see…

hmmmm…

well…

OK, finally made that decision!

But what colors for the centers???

Ahhhhhhh!

It’s fun looking back at what else was going on while I was designing & making this quilt last fall.

The last of our newly married son’s stuff got moved to his & his wife’s home.

I now have an entire closet to store my pattern sample quilts, yay!

I use the room to stage the packing of the quilts when I do shows & travel to teach.

Yes, I miss our son, but I’m fortunate that he & his wife live close so we get to see them frequently.

And the anniversary of losing a loved one.

Sad, but part of life.

I thank God for my faith & family!

Did I tell you that I’m now part of our church’s funeral choir?

What a blessing to be part of something so special.

You might think it would be all sad,

but oddly enough the bond our music group shares is very nice.

Many family members that we’ve served are so thankful for our presence.

Funny how doing something kind for others always

gives so much back in return.

FYI… if you’re not already,

you better get caught up this week.

I hear there may be a

give-away

in store for one or more DQWS quilter soon….

but you’ll also need to be part of our Dresden Quilt Workshop, Facebook group.

Just Keep Sewing…
