Finished Scrappy Dresden Quilt

Scrappy Dresden | MD Anderson Quilt Auction | ReannaLily DesignsIf you have been following along on the blog, you’ll know that I was working on a group quilt project to send to MD Anderson’s Quilt Auction.

Well, what I couldn’t share on the blog was the PLOT TWIST: The group project actually was to make two quilts. Three friends and two moms made a total of 40 blocks. (That would be only 8 blocks per person.) ONE quilt will be donated to MD Anderson’s Quilt Auction and the second, identical quilt, will be given to my friend who lost her mother to cancer in December.

Not always an easy task to grab a quilt picture, but it worked out.

  1. I love this design. My mother had this quilt – It had been
    made by her grandmother. I am 70 yrs, so imagine how old that
    quilt was

    Best Wishes for a Happy Easter.

  2. I hung mine up on the upstairs banister for everyone to see. Every time I look at it I will think of my mom and the women who helped make it. You guys are the best and I keep thinking…..I am very rich in friends.
