Yippee……….. I finally finished my dream project of making a dresden design !!!!!!!!!! :-).
Almost a yearn ago I signed up for Craftsy block of the month 2012 class. When I was going through the study materials, I saw this dresden design taught by wonderful lady Amy Gibson of stitcherydickorydock and I fell in love with that design. I was waiting to get some perfect fabrics to make it with. This January, I bought ” Moda Sewing Box By Gina Jelly Roll” Just for $15 including shipping. The first thing I wanted to do was this wall hanging.
I did 2 blocks 14″ X 14″ finished sizes. I selected all 40 fabrics of the jellyroll and did 40 cute little (4.5″ long) dresden blades. I wanted to see how would they look with colors varying gradually (block1) as well as scrappy look with colors scattered all over the place (block2).
I just used a fabric from my stash. As nobody can see it while hanging on the wall, I didn’t focus much on selecting the backing fabric. Love those quilting designs done using walking foot and hope you do too.
Let me know which view and which block you like better. I am partial towards vertical view and the top block with scattered colors ;-).
