Dresden Wreath - WIP

The dresden wreath is on my design wall today. I still need to make the fabric bow. The wreath is waiting in line to be quilted.  I just finished adding the borders. The gold strip is a 1/4" flange.  I really like the effect of a narrow fange to separate and frame borders.  I think I will make the next one finish at 1/8" as I like the appearance of piping, without doing the piping. LOL  My dresden didn't come out perfect.  I will try to hide it's imperfections under the bow. Ssshh,  don't tell.

Spiral Tree Skirt

This 25" spiral tree skirt is on my design wall today.  It is made with the 9 degree wedge ruler.  I saw an image of a harvest print used to make a wreath wall hanging in this style.  I chose a christmas print and set about making my wreath.  I am unhappy with the proportions.  I should have made the strip with the christmas fabric much narrower.  The design ratio is overwhelming as a wreath, so I am turning it into a christmas tree skirt for a tabletop tree.  It needs to be quilted and finished off with some red binding and ties.

Scrap Scramble Block 3 - November

I'm stitching along with Carol Doak's Scrap Scramble BOM project.  It is so rewarding to work entirely from the scrap bins.  Here is my November block,  it took all day to make it, half of my time is spent fussing over fabrics.  I had planned a different rotation of the baskets, but I made the error while putting it together.  The stitches are too tiny to bother with the seam ripper. I still like it.


If you want to see the other blocks made for this project, you will find them on the  Scrap Scramble  page.

I'm linking up with Judy at  Patchwork Times where you can see what is going on the design walls of other creative quilters.

Scraphappy Saturday - Browns

I've grown very comfortable with earthy colors.  I really like my block of browns this month.  As with black, I dont have alot of variety in browns. I do expect that scrap bin to continuing growing.I also stitched up some brown strippy sets. I haven't decided how I'll cut those up yet.  I'm saving them for next year's project.


I'm linking up with Angela over at Soscrappy where you can see what everyone else is creating with their brown scrap pile.
