Last we were together I was up to my eyeballs in these.
Aren’t the little piles of alligator teeth too cute?
(easily amused, yes I know…)
With a little help from my favorite vices…
I was able to complete all of the half Tiny Dresden plates from the 1,600+ petals!
This is all of them sewn;
the extra petals set aside for another project down the road.
The little rows just make me smile!
(again, easily amused, yes I know…)
I was able to make 6 half Tiny Dresden plates from each of the 40 jelly roll strips
of Jo Morton’s New Hope by Moda Fabrics.
During our annual retreat to local quilt shop, Rosemary’s,
I got to work making blocks from the half Tiny Dresden plates for my next quilt.
This is my work space all set up & ready to sew.
My cute little Dritz Mighty Steam Iron showed up just in time to travel with me.
What a great find!
It’s the perfect little Dresden plate iron!!!
It’s extremely light-weight & just the right size for pressing my little plates.
I wish I’d known about them sooner!
I was so impressed that I’m now carrying them on my website for you to purchase here.
Don’t let the small size fool you.
It gets super hot!
It’s great for pressing small half-square triangles too.
I also like it for pressing block parts.
Choosing the center circle fabrics is a bit like choosing which Barbie shoes should complete her ensemble, lol…
Love, love, love each step!
Can’t wait to show you the finished quilt,
but that will have to wait for another day.
Just Keep Sewing…
