    Here is the Dresden Plate variation I was playing with. I don't have fabrics with repeats so I decided to make my own. I sewed 1.25" strips of different colors to the top and bottom of a 3.5" strip to make a 5" wedge. I sewed the top of the wedge, right sides together and turned it inside out to make the point. I sewed 5 of these together, alternating the colored points and appliqued to a 7.5" white square, turning the curved bottom edge under. As you can see you can have a lot of fun with this design - it can be scrappy, you can use Stack N Whack, you can create your own repeats as I did - lots of possibilities. This may be a WH, but I may turn it into a quilt - depends on how ambitious I get.

    Both DPs are very cool, one traditional and the fabrics are great along with the pink & blk. This pattern when using a fan or drunkards path block, as I know it, is called Bunting. I really like it, J.

    The 2nd has a very modern and fun look. Totally different from a typical DP. I like this interpretation too.
    You rock, J.
    peace

    EDIT: My DH wants to know if the traditional one is going to be in the swap?
    peace

    Haha if by traditional you mean the pink and grey one I am not sure. I might turn it into a quilt. But since we have time and like Rhonda I have ideas brewing, I might ditch my mixed media one and do another DP variant. I really like how the pink/grey is coming out. Plus I will get to do some neat FMQ in it.

    I finally figured out what I'm going to do for my wallhanging. It has something to do with gardening.

    Sign up for wall hanging swap!
    anyone can sign up at any time as long as you have a wall hanging ready to mail by June 30th
    Only those who let me know they are ready to mail will get an address on July 1st.

    Signing up doesn't tie you down to having to have one done. IF you don't get done on time you can wait and send it on the next swap. NO pressure at all.

    Welcome Anoke Quilter! Glad you joined us!

    A good beginning. Just keep changing those flowers till your happy. personally I like the big flower, maybe a different fabric but the size and shape is nice with the can. Love the polka dot watering can.

    Hi everyone. Boy, has this thread been quite for the past few months.

    So what is everyone up to?

    I see a few pictures and ideas going on.

    Hope all is well out there.

    I made it through the dregs of winter and finally the first time I could open the windows all day, yesterday. It was wonderful. And while enjoying the freshness I spotted Baltimore Orioles, Rose Breasted Grosbeaks and Indigo Buntings at my feeders, along with all the regular visitors. These birds are just passing through to cooler climates in the north. I was just lucky enough to look outside at the right time to see them.

    I have finished another quilt top and will post it later.

    lets see what everyone is doing!!!!!
    peace

    Hi again. I have a few photos for show and tell.

    The birds may not be so good, I caught them on the fly, so to speak!

    The quilt is a test of a pattern that was discovered inside one of those pre-cut packages. A friend, not a quilter, but wants to be, bought it because she liked the fabric and it was on sale at WM and ......

    after the purchase, discovers there is not enough material in the pkg to make the quilt. She brought her problem to me to figure out and of course she was right.

    I told her I would figure the amount of yardage she would need to actually make the quilt.

    While I did this, I wanted to test the pattern for correctness and this is the result.

    This is not the packaged material from my friend.

    The pattern s called Lattice Quilt and can be found at fabriceditions.com A very simple and quick make.

    Ube, I think the fabrics you chose are gorgeous. And I like the pattern -- it look like lattice!

    Wow ube I like that pattern! I have to make a baby quilt using black red and white and that pattern just might work. I made 3 bowl warmers for my mom for Mothers Day, a cute zippered clutch for my friends birthday and I finished the Swirly Dresden Plate. Made some outdoor slipcovers this weekend, and I am thinking about making some tote bags for fun. Oh and a rooster WH! We have Baltimore Orioles back along with the ruby throat hummingbirds and goldfinches. Yay spring!

    I have my wall hanging pieced and ready to be quilted. Then all I need to finish is the emblishments. I am hoping to get it all quilted this weekend.

    Election night ... at the office, waiting for the next ballot count ... if I had a portable sewing machine, I could be making the most of my time!

    I am planning on finishing mine over the holiday weekend.

    Should we post pictures of the completed wall-hangings or are they suppose to be a surprise to the person receiving them?
