Default Dresden Wonky Neighborhood Pillow

I have always loved this pattern whenever I see a picture on the web so decided to make one in a color wheel.m I didn't have a pattern. I used my Zimmerman 8" Easy Dresden template (18 degree) because I wanted 20 wedges....then I just made my own applique pieces. One can certainly go crazy with adding fun stuff to your neighborhood like trees, floral's, flags etc..... I did make a church but limited the fun embellishment because I wanted the color wheel to be primary focus. However, wouldn't it be fun to make 4 different neighborhoods representing each season and make a quilt? Or using "sky" background fabric. The ideas are endless. This is 24" squared and is mostly a wall hanging but I made this into a giant pillow for my front entry bench. I ordered a 24" pillow form so it was easy enough to do a pocket pillow. Anywhoooo..applique is turned edge and machine sewn using monofilliment clear and smoke colors from Superior Threads. I'm going to make another one as a gift for my real estate agent....when he sells my house. Lol!! Perfect gift for a real estate agent don't you think?

Teen!!! Oh my goodness, I am going to call you Queen of mini's. This is just too adorable. You are very clever to design and figure a pattern on your own. Way to make those tools work for you. Love it! I think it would make a great gift for your real estate agent.

I'm not generally a fan of Dresden Plates -but this is the CUTEST pattern I've ever seen in that style! You have great ideas churning there, I love your mini quilt, good luck on getting the home sold!
