    lots of dresdens!

    I posted in a previous thread my frustration with making mini-dresdens, and had some great advice, however, the wrong ruler LOL ...

    as a result, I ended up with tons of blades, and very few of the ones I actually wanted ... so here's what I have done with them!

    Now to just put them all on fabric!

    Great save - How would it look if the border wedges had the points turned out, to match the middle section.

    I like the points turned in but I would turn the corner ones out. Whatever you choose it is going to look great. Be sure to post a pic when completed. Great job!

    I like the idea of them pointing outward too. Worth a few minutes to switch them and see if you like it too. Perhaps switching two sides so you can compare and see what you think?

    Your creative mind is always working. These dresdens are so pretty. Can't have too much pink!

    I agree with Tallchick. Your quilt (lemonade) is very pretty and so very interesting. Kudos to you for your lovely design.

    That is going to be so pretty. Love how you are using up the extras. No waste-that is the way to go.

    I think your placement would be cute if you put the corner dresdens pointing out and do half a fan if you have enough. Just a thought.

    That's a really cute layout! It's nice to be able to use what you've put so much work into.

    How strange I received this email and a picture of the blades are there. It will be a lovely quilt. Look forward to seeing the finished quilt.
