Focus...

I've got several projects in the works and this week I decided none will get done unless I focus on something. So I chose my Dresden quilt and worked on coming up with a setting.
After rejecting a few ideas, I settled on this - scrappy Nine-Patch cornerstones and simple sashing.
I'm doing 12 Dresden blocks and I've only got 1 1/2 left to applique.
It's amazing how things move along when you focus!

If you're local - don't forget the quilter's garage sale at Bindings, Borders and Squares this Saturday. I've got some fabric bundles, quilt tops and finished quilts to sell. Hope to see you there!

  6. I love the bright colors! I used a similar setting for my "Bunny" quilt and it took me a loooong time to get it right but staying focused is definately the key.

  9. Love the setting - after seeing your initial blocks I ordered the ruler and am doing it out of hot pinks, greens and blacks - Are you doing a border or is this it.
