Making Progress In Steps

Craftsy July Block of the Month - Dresden Plate Block
Though it isn't completely finished I'm almost at home plate. I ran out of my background fabric with great hope that my favorite local quilt shop will have it on stock. I made the Dresden plate while watching Bonnie Hunter on live cam while she was working in her quilt studio Saturday evening.
It was fun sewing along with Bonnie as she fielded many text messages while on camera answering quilters questions on various topics.

 Craftsy July 2012 Block of the Month - Modern Dresden Plate Block
Sunday evening Bonnie Hunter again was on live cam so I took the opportunity to sew along with her. I can't wait to purchase more background fabric to finish the Dresdens. The first Dresden Plate went together well. The Modern one didn't!  I had to do some ripping and re seaming.

Yeah! This was Friday nights accomplishment. Now I only need to cut 666 more pieces of White Kona Cotton which I didn't have on hand. I am so looking forward to going to Mary Jo Fabrics with a friend on Wednesday. I am hoping Mary Jo will have White Kona in stock so I can continue.


  1. Nice dresden's. I have yet to do mine:/ And all that cutting!! My LEAST favorite part of a project!
