I thought it would be fun to make some Dresdens with some of my Christmas stash fabrics. At first I was going to make the Dresden Plate Table Runner by Kim over at the Moda Bake Shop. So, I used 3 3/4" dresdens with a three-inch center just as her pattern calls for. But then I saw this really cute Christmas pillow by Allison over at Cluck. Cluck. Sew. I can't decide which to make now...probably both...but if I use these dresdens for pillows I may not have time to get the runner finished before Christmas. Oh well...there's always next Christmas, right?
Another quilt is bound and washed...this one I was really nervous to wash.
I've never washed a quilt with applique' before...most of the applique'd quilts I make are wallhangings, and I've just never washed one. But I knew I wanted to use this quilt and was just a bit nervous as to what the applique'd blocks would do in the wash...I was pleasantly surprised!
I love the look of the applique'd blocks after they've been washed!
And, I finished a goal this weekend for Kelly's Charming Girls' Quilt Club!
My Cobblestones quilt top is finished. I really enjoyed making this little quilt...a lot of pieces, but so fun! And I loved using four different background fabrics for a scrappy look!
That's all for now...just ten quilting/sewing/stitching days before Christmas! Have a great day!
