    Tonights experiment

    I really loved the scrappy dresden posted by leatheflea the other day. It got me thinking about what could be done with my leftover string blocks, so tonight I cut them up into dresden blades and here's the result. I really like them. I've been wanting to do a quilt with circles, these may just the thing. Thank you leatheflea for the inspiration! In one of my previous posts I was asked for a better pic of my fur baby so I am including one here. My 95 lb. best pal, Dillinger, always by my side.

    What a great idea on the blocks!! I was just telling my husband the other day that if I were to get a dog I would want a German Shepherd. He is beautiful!

    great idea for colorful scraps! I'm not sure I'm ready for circles yet but it does look inviting. German shepherds are wonderful dogs and this one looks like he could be a great friend. Mine would keep after me until we went for a walk each day ... I really miss him for that.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    After making the Dresdan circles, how will you put your quilt together? Just wondering. Be sure and show us when you get it together. I love scrappy, no matter what pattern is used.

    Neat idea!

    Love your furbaby. Makes me miss mine. I called him my "overlap" dog because if a bad storm came through he would try to jump into my lap. He was not as big as yours, only about 60 pounds but too big for my lap. I would sit on the floor with him and hug him until the storm quieted down.

    Love both. I miss my departed German sheppard. She was MY first dog and I loved her till the end. The string circles are very inventive. You are one smart quilter. Hats off to you. Hugs

    Like your block and love your furbaby. I have owned 4 German Shepherds over time. They are my favorite breed.

    And where else would you want him to be? He's pretty. We had a retriever, shepherd, pitbull mix (Buddy). He was the best but never cared to be inside.
