Scrappy Dresden Quilt Top
Scrappy Dresden Quilt Blocks, measuring 18″ square, arrived at my house. Hooray Hooray!
There are 5 groups of blocks. It turns out, the 4 other quilters made their “scrappy” blocks with layer cakes. They look great! My blocks are every fabric from every place, so…. um… it appears I sew to the beat of my own drummer. Le’Sigh. BUT scrappy is scrappy.
My mom came over and while we were sitting on the couch I said something along the lines of “Hey, lets go stitch those blocks together. It will be fast: only 4 columns of 5 rows.” Let the piecing begin!
She used the sewing machine and I set up the serger. Man, that serger is so fast! I love it.
Funny side story, that serger right there was a newlywed Christmas gift in 1996. That is REALLY the gift that keeps on giving! Thanks, hubbs!
This is what the table really looks like. Huge cutting mat covers the whole table surface. Stuff is shoved to one side. Piles are stacked on top of each other. Thimble guy, on the shelf, is always freakin-the-hell-out. (Thanks, DAWN!) Test projects are waiting for a purpose. Scissors are everywhere. It is mayhem.
The super Scrappy Dresden quilt pieced together quite quickly and very nicely. We kept order, so the matching layer cake blocks would make a diagonal line in the quilt. See it?
This quilt is so great. Each time you look at it, you see a different fabric.
Now, to get this baby quilted & bound and on to MD Anderson’s Fundraising Quilt Auction.
