Scrappy Dresdens for a Cause

on Jan 23, 2015 in Blog, charity, quilt | 0 comments

In December, one of my closest friends lost her mom to cancer. She, I, and our other closest friend are going to work together on a bed-size Scrappy Dresden pattern quilt to donate to MD Anderson’s 2015 Quilt Auction.

The friends working on the project are all making dresden blocks with whatever scraps we have on hand. Here’s my scraps. There’s loads “on-hand.”

We’re each cutting our dresdens, using the EZ Dresden Ruler, to measure 7″ tall. The middles might vary a bit, though.

These are my wedges. It is 160 total wedges. Phew. That is a pretty good collection of fabric right there. I quite proud. =)

I put together a quick video to show my super scrappy dresdens.

Next, we will each be machine stitching our dresden flowers to a white background. All the blocks will be mailed to me for final assembly & quilting. Stay tuned. I’m sure I’ll have more posts/pics as we work on this group quilt.
