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 & see all the progress.

This week we will a refer to

 Star-Spangled Dresdens page 45.

I love how dynamic this block is!

I think the addition of the Tiny Dresden plate in the center is perfect.

You’ll be making 2 of these blocks this week.

IMHO they go together pretty effortlessly.

I’ll be curious if you think so too.

I don’t recall having any reservations about my fabric choices.

I was excited to try this block out in other fabrics besides the patriotic feeling original color scheme.

& I think it works well in these Jen Kingwell prints!

& these Jen Kingwell prints too!

By now do you too have a pretty basket full of coordinating scraps?

This is where my creative brain wants to take that basket full of scraps and make something else as awesome as this quilt…. it just doesn’t quit!

Unfortunately time has a way of sneaking in and telling me “NO!”.

This is also where I finished another large spool of my most-favorite #1180, Medium Taupe!

It’s no wonder since I use this thread almost exclusively in my quilting.

Besides the bubble gum pink/poison green plates pictured with the spools,

I also used it for this whole quilt; piecing & applique for the plates too.

It blends so well with so many of my fabric choices.

I also had fun matching things up to see how the design as a whole was progressing…

2 more blocks.

Just Keep Sewing…
