What are you most proud of? No, it's not my lousy photography! The background is shaded! LOL! I was able to cut the shaded (ombre) fabric in this bundle to make the background for this block.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I sewed the curves very slowly. I made the circle by cutting two 7" diameter circles, sewing them together, cutting a slit & turning inside out.

Love dresden blocks Darns - yours looks terrific - love your fabrics and the stitching on the inner circle looks absolutely perfect.
