Sugar Dish and the Jabber…

Showing you more of this quilt totally skipped my mind until yesterday when I was literally smooshing it into the "quilt" closet.  This quilt came about because I wanted to do a girly quilt with dresden plates.  Original I know.  But… wouldn’t it be cute on a toddler bed?  With those little dresden plates going across the bottom of the bed all in a row?  Gheesh I need a girl.

My favorite block…those little dolls are so cute.   That fabric was a scrap Kathy gave me.

These dresdens were addicting!  I want to make more just to put on my walls…except not so pink.

The back is an orange and pink Sandi Henderson print…I forgot to take a picture of it and there’s no way in heck I’m getting it out of that closet again and trying to smoosh it back in!

Also…there’s a little diddy about me over at the Fat Quarter Shop blog with a pattern giveaway that ends Wednesday.  Fun stuff!

everyday muses said...

your quilts are absolutely stunning. i bet if you had (have) a girl, your sewing/crafting projects would explode out of control. :) not that i would know since i only have a boy so far...but i've noticed among my friends that they only start pulling out (or buying) the sewing machine once a girl enters the family!

Sandra said...

This quilt is lovely! So cute and feminine!

Lauren @ Craft My Life Away said...

I don't like a whole quilt of dresdens, but they look so fresh and modern in the midst of the squares. Brilliant design. Love it!! Just finished my raw edge circles quilt based on your tute, by the way.
