Lots of Little Dresdens

happening at my place, and I've noticed a few other places as well.

Mine started a couple of weeks ago when I went along to "Summer School" being run by Mrs Martins Quilt Shop.  Now I must admit I knew nothing of Max and Louise Pattern Company, the girls who were our tutors for the day, but their display of quilts was nothing short of amazing, and I had also done very little paper piecing or needleturn applique, but after our day I was in love with both.

These are five of the seven projects that we received patterns for on the day - yummy aren't they?  I bought a kit and started working the Dresden mini, top right.

And these were the other two gorgeous designs.


I don't often work in reproduction fabrics, but loved these.

Now I did have a sneaky peak of some other dresdens I've been working on, but the photo made them look like dirty dish water, so I'll leave that for another time. Cheryl
