What advice would you give someone starting this project? I didnt use a backing on the wheel - just ironed the tops of the blades back a 1/4" and then sewed them as for the traditional Dresden.

Thanks, desna, I really like looking at pics of all the blocks so far - you can really see how the quilt will come together

DARNS ! It was YOU that made the terrific dragonfly! I couldn't remember! (Thank you for the inspiration -- you are the reason I made *my* dragonfly.) And I LOVE these July blocks.

Thanks, AlyxRansom, just had another look at your mountain dragonfly - such a great block! I really, really want to get the rest of blocks done & get these assembled. Waiting this long is not one of my skills - -

Waiting is not one of my skills either -- but I am now TWO months behind. Life has been hectic! I'm hopeful I can get to June some time this week. And... then... to July (before August!). We'll see. Alyx

Great idea for the background! I like these blocks the best of all so far, don't you?

Thanks, Sue, got the background idea from applekrisp - I like the Dresdens (much to my surprise) and I even had fun with the hexies (another surprise). I really like sampler quilts!

Great use of batiks! The old Dresden is so much more dimensional.
