    Dotty For Dresden.....By Charisma

    OK Remember that little Obsession I have spoken of before?

    Material Obsession....Well yes...this one is also part of that.

    Mine looks a bit different than the book because let's face it....it needed to have a bit of “Charisma” flavor added to it.

    The pattern in the book is called “Dotty For Dresden”

    So to make the dresdens I used the cheater method they explain in the book....They have a template that you can copy and cut out to me your dresdens..I decided to go down to my local glass place..they made me a template from plexiglass for like 3$. It made the process of cutting them out so much easier. Then I spent time sorting my scraps..picking scraps that appeal to me..LOL...which you see here in all their glory. I also added yo-yo's...many many yo-yos..to give it dimension..I love dimension.

    Thanks so much for looking!

    It's just to cha-cha for words -- oh wait that's from Steel Magnolia's I think -- anyway -- it's amazing!

    Fabulous. I love the material obsession work also. You've done a great job again!
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.
