Dare to Dresden Hop!!

I'm so glad to be apart of another super fun Blog Hop!!
Thanks again to Madame Samm for creating all the fun and Christine from Quilt Monster in My Closet for hosting all the excitement!!
I used these fabrics and this design as my practice piece for some pillows I will be making as a gift for Christmas this year!! I wanted to practice my Dresden to see how many tries it would take me to get it right. It wasn't to bad only a few tries. I really like how all the colors came together and think they are going to make great pillows!!


Here are all of the other creative ladies posting today!! Go check out their fabulous creations!!

Suze said...

Funny about perceptions! When I first saw your beautiful Dresdens, my first thought was what beautiful pot holders. It wasn't until I read that I realized that they might be larger since you are entertaining the idea of making pillows. Of course, pillows come in a multitude of sizes. Regardless, they are beautiful and you did a marvelous job. They will make a great addition to any home whatever the finished project. You need to be proud to your workmanship. Thank you for sharing your creativity. It is an inspiration.
