Dresden Fan...

Let's start with the back. One of my favorite fabric lines is Patty Young's Andalucia. I used it in a quilt for my granddaughter when it was first released. When it was rereleased this year in yummy new colors, I jumped on some yardage. And I didn't want to cut up that fun flower print, so I decided to save it for the back and use it as the color inspiration for my Dresden Fan quilt.


For the blocks I used aquas and greens and added one block in pink. I love how it pops out!


 The quilting flowed easily when I decided to quilt wavy lines concentrically on each block. A flower at each corner and a small flower in each center octagon completed it all.


There's a link on my free pattern page which takes you to this post on making the block.



Yeah! Another UFO off the list and a pretty quilt to snuggle under!  . . . Cindy
