Monday Morning Share 8.9.2010




Spent my weekend finishing up two projects! I am always amazed how long it take to get the border on a quilt and I really wanted these to be mitered borders so they took a bit more time!! I love the look of my purple circle and I can't wait to try the Red/Black/White Convergence Quilt pattern but make something completely different with a bit more slicing and dicing. I also began a Dresden Plate pattern after I found out how easy it really is so it fills my need for a take-along hand project. I made my own template and it turned out great. Now I have a chance to use up my bags of scraps as I am working on both a English Paper Piecing hexigon quilt and the Dresden Plate.

  1. I buy dresden blocks (unappliqued) on Ebay and carry them with me for hand work. I like that it's just one block and there aren't a bazillion little pieces.

    Duh! I never thought of using my scraps to make my own.

  2. Wow! I love your purple circle :) I've been watching the Dresden Plate blocks that are popping up on blogs recently but haven't tried them yet. Sounds like you're having fun with them.

  3. Very pretty and all are so unique. The convergence quilt looks so complicated but it isn't, love that.

  7. The quilts look terrific! I like the circle quilt very much. I have an unfinished Dresden block (1!) that has sat in a box for about 8 years...poor, sad little thing!
