Quilts and Dresdans!

This quilt is a scrappy log cabin style quilt that I made in one of my Bees last year. This lovely has been a UFO for almost 1 year and I finished quilting it this weekend. I did freestyle leaves and the back is a vintage sheet. I thought the sheet would be an added bonus because it is so soft and the color is perfect. I will show it to you once i have it bound.

Here is a closer look of the quilt. Isn't is just lovely scrappiness?

I love all these fabrics together. I would never put them together but it turned out rather pleasing to the eye actually. It is just fun.

Over at the Old Red Barn Co. we're doing a Dresdan quilt along. I'm doing all my dresdans with all my scraps. I have this large stack cut and I still have a lot of scraps. I think I might make an entire quilt with the scraps. I think a large sized quilt will make a fabulous gift.....oh if I only had the time to finish it.

This fabulous Moda fabric has been hiding in my fabric stash since last year and I'm going to use it to make a dresdan wall hanging.The snowflake fabric will be the back ground and the fabric on the left will be the actual dresdans. I might like to add some Christmas saying or maybe something to add to the festive-ness of the hanging.

I'm excited to start this process....just wish I wasn't doing school too, I might have more time.


  1. love the figgy pudding fabric. Presents- wall hangings are the way to go and we can get them done in time for Christmas. Your scrappy quilt looks great.

  2. I think I need to make one of those - thanks for the inspiration! I love scrappy & bright colors & your quilt would win a blue ribbon for that.
