It’s always fun to get away to sew (& eat)!
And sew I did, all weekend long…
I got a lot done on my new pattern sample.
I sewed the Tiny Dresden petals that I showed you last week.
Trimming and then pressing.
Turning right side out and making pretty points.
All 384 of them!
And, not 1 was lost since I was using my new cutlery tray
to transport them back & forth to the ironing board and my sewing machine.
I had made the Mini Dresden centers last week.
Roxanne’s EZ-Squeeze glue, my Classic Metal Company brochure,
and Appliquick Bar give me very precise results every single time.
I also had 4 half (+ seam allowance) circles to made for the 4 half Mini Dresden blocks.
Same process, but you don’t have to cover the long straight edge
since it will go inside the seam allowance when it’s sewn into the quilt.
Fun, fun, fun!!!
32 Tiny Dresden plates
5 Mini Dresden plates
4 half Mini Dresden plates
32 freezer paper leaves
(but I needed 16… 4 x 4 =16, not 8!!!)
Each 23″ block has 1 Mini Dresden plate,
8 Tiny Dresden plates,
8 leaves & 4 stems.
I got 3 of the 4 big blocks appliqued before we left Sunday,
but you’ll have to wait to see those, sorry.
This is all that’s left of the pieces.
Can’t wait to finish it.
It’s been a whole month since Christmas.
What are you creating?
Just Keep Sewing…

Do you sell the quilt lites or should I contact Barn Quilts directly?? Is the 2017 Nativity applique for sale?
You can purchase the lights & Barn Quilts here: Classicmetalcompany.com or contact Mark at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I will have the Nativity for sale this spring, but not yet, sorry! I’m working on a lot of new designs for patterns that are Christmas and little Dresden plates. I will post here when they’re ready.
