New Pattern #11

is My Little Dresden Garden.

It’s another product of the Tiny Dresden/Jelly Roll experiment of January 2018.

Scientific, no. Fun, yes!

After I finished the original intent of the Tiny Dresden plates, Dresden Sundaes,

I had many more half Dresden plates left over.

For the first quilt (there are 3 quilts in this pattern)

I chose some of the red half plates with at least 2 pairs left and used them for the flowers.

These were drying on my kitchen table under the ceiling fan

after I wet them to remove the center paper templates.

Now what background fabric?

Cream withe dots? Black?

Then which green?

Too blue, too dark…

I had to go shopping for “greens”.

Better!

And now which cream background???

I think I got it.

Now to add leaves.

Looking good…

Do I need some grass too?

Nope!

They’re cute just as they are (which is exactly how I designed them).

Why do I waste so much time second guessing myself???

Quilt #2…

Need something in the middle?

Nope! But a cute thought…

With the help of my little pony (LOL.. not sure why Jody had a horse in her quilt shop),

but she ordered the whole New Hope collection,

so, lucky me I was able to go there & choose between all of the reds for my bindings.

BTW, she still had quite a bit of New Hope left when I was there last week, 40%off!

Finally I decided to make the last quilt that was in my head

& in my computer that I designed for the pattern.

It’s soooo little, just 6″ wide,

but soooo cute!

Meet My Little Dresden Garden.

3 quilts, 1 pattern.

All with Tiny Dresden plates.

All on my website.

Just Keep Sewing…
