Dresden Fan retreat

I just returned from a productive quilt retreat with a wonderful group of talented quilters!
The Dresden Fan was the project of the week with 9 out of 14 of us working on our own version. Several chose polka-dots like the original and they were oh so cute!





Of course, there's always a rebel in the group who has to try something way out of the box. These blocks turned out awesome. I think the design has tons of possibilities!


I came home and finished up my last 4 blocks and they're ready to be sewn together. I think I'm going to love this one!


Here are a few other projects I was able to get a snapshot of:




And I finished a top that I'm so happy with. I'll get a picture soon, but one of our ambitious quilters sewed my cut-offs into these super cute little blocks (2 1/4").


You might want to head over to the Martingale blog for an awesome free pattern. It's also a great time to pick up something in the shop as everything is 25% off! Have a great weekend!
