Dresden #1 Sept.
In Craftsy's first-ever Block of the Month, Amy Gibson brings you 10 specific quilting techniques - appliqué, string quilting, paper piecing and more.
What materials did you use?
Cotton from my stash
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Note I used only THREE fabrics. I thought it looked nice this way and blended well with my other blocks.
Oops. I should have said three "Prints", not three fabrics. My background is pink and I used the green twice, because the one block looked so lonely!! Still love my black paisley
Me, too. I like most paisleys Your block is really lovely....great job. Good call on the lonely corner block I think it would have looked empty without the green there.
Thank you so much. As the blocks have developed, my focus has been to lighten up some with more pink (the only fabric I purchased). It is interesting to watch what happens when we don't know the end result. A few adjustments at the end, I'm sure. Thanks for your support
I love this block Surfside6 your fabrics are super
Thanks, Desna. Have you decided which stack and whack to make yet? I should try to put together a couple of blocks and post from an old one I have on a back burner just so you can see it.
Oh that would be great:)) I have acturally got my fabric now, had been looking for a while and then just found the right one. Im busy making my little grand daughter a buggy quilt and a bed quilt for her 1st birthday for next month, so the stack and whack is on hold until then.
Wow! That's beautiful surfside6!
Thanks Damsel. Sort of look like wiggily worms to me, but I am happy with it. I have to get cracking on the second block. Been busy with some group things in my apartment building and want to finish something for Halloween for my apartment door. "You have probably see the wall haning with the big black hat and purple shoes that says "The Witch Is In". I've loved it for years and finally bought it.
Your blocks are great! I haven't done this one yet. Waiting for a ruler to be delivered.
That is very nice of you to say. I am running a little behind,doggone it. I was right on time until Sept. I hope you enjoy this block as you work on it
