    second Mini Dresden finished

    Hi all

    been gone for quite a while. Was very bussy but always had the board on my mind.
    I quilted my second mini Dresden during my stay in Sri Lanka and finally made the binding. My dream right now is that my granddaughter will wrap her doll with this quilt one day.................but maybe I will get the fifth grandson end of September!?
    The quilt measures 20 x 20 inches and I think this is the smallest size dresden can be made accurate? But I thought that at the time I made the first one for QuiltE also..............:-)

    Lovely! I love your mini Dresdens!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Gorgeous mini quilt. Your work is gorgeous. Sounds like you may get another Grandson. Save for a possible Great Granddaughter.

    I admire your incredibly tiny work! I could never get my fingers to manipulate things that tiny thru an entire quilt, even if the quilt measured "only" 20" x20"!

    Your work is just beautiful. Not sure how you do it, but sure love seeing your work.
    A home is built of peace and love,
    and not of wood and stone,
    a place where happiness lives
    and memories are sewn.
