I know it is a little early for this. because I still have 18 more blocks to do, but I thought you might like to see my attempt at a Dresden Heart. I fell in love with this design and I love how it is turning out
I am using Steam-a-Seam 2 to applique the heart onto the blocks. The blocks are 14 inches square so the Dresden Hearts are really big! I am going to do 4 blocks across and 5 down so this can fit on my bed. I will probably do a combination of machine and hand quilting. If I have enough material I am going to make matching pillow shams. If anyone is interested the templates can be found here:
The pansey print is going to be the back of the quilt and if I have enough I may use some on the front. I just brought a grape and a teal green batik that I am going to use to frame the blocks and the quilt. That will be coming with more Steam-a-Seam 2.
Here are two pictures, one a little closer then the other. Hope you all enjoy,
