Just a quick post today with lots of pictures of my new dresden quilt...
"Ring Around the Rosy".
I've showed you several dresden quilts that I've made before.
But I can't stop making them!
I love them...seriously people...
I might have to go to dresden rehab!
My name is Lori...
and I'm addicted to dresdens.
I used a light pink background for a soft "vintagey cottage" look...
which are the two words that I use to describe my Daisy Cottage line.
I also made cute little mini dresdens to go inbetween the larger ones.
Before I continue on talking about how I made the quilt...first just take a look at the quilting!!!!...my friend Helen quilted this one too.
Helen is just amazingingly talented...she did an over the top gorgeous job!
She knows I love swirls and feathered borders.
Mr.Honey hung Ring Around the Rosy off of the upper deck in the backyard so it would hang down to the patio for pictures.
I always love to photograph my quilts outside if possible because the
natural light is so beautiful.
Instead of the traditional appliqued circles in the centers...I thought it would be fun to use doilies and buttons.
I love adding crochet details to my designs.
I often add buttons too...all of the buttons in this quilt are different but all are a cottage white:)
Notice that these dresdens only have 12 blades instead of the traditional 20.
I think the wider blades show off
larger scale fabrics!
The blocks are large...
so only a dozen big dresdens and
20 mini dresdens make a
full size quilt for a double bed.
By adding 4 more large dresdens and 5 more mini's it would be a nice queen size...
or you could make only 9 large dresdens and
16 mini's for a square quilt!
The possibilities are endless which brings me back to why I love dresdens so much:)
My Daisy Cottage FQ bundle and new patterns giveaway still is ongoing...thanks to all of you for your lovely comments and good luck!
