Say what?? Up until maybe six months ago I had no idea what the heck a dresden was. And up until yesterday morning I had no intention of ever making one. They just looked too. damn. hard. But looky here......
|I decided I "needed" to make a cushion cover for a gift. So I got out the Sarah Fielke fat quarter bundles I bought the other week, and cut in to them. I had seen this design over at Pretty Bobbins, so used the same TUTORIAL. I am hoping Gemma sees my attempts at using some of the same tutorials as she has as a major form of flattery!|
Only problem? Once I'd made it up, I decided that although I loved it, it wasn't quite the look I was going for!
So last night I pulled out a whole lot of "scraps" and came up with this.......
|And had SOOOO much fun! I played around with the FMQ and was very impressed with myself after doing some love hearts.|
|See!!!!!!! This won't be seen because it will be a cushion cover - but I love how you can actually see the love hearts!|
I need to get it finished by a deadline, so will have to keep plugging away - I've never made a cushion cover - should be interesting!
And the first dresden?? Well - I've decided that needs to be a part of a quilt! I'm sure you will hear more about that W.I.P. over the next little bit!
