New Pattern #11
is My Little Dresden Garden.
It’s another product of the Tiny Dresden/Jelly Roll experiment of January 2018.
Scientific, no. Fun, yes!
After I finished the original intent of the Tiny Dresden plates, Dresden Sundaes,
I had many more half Dresden plates left over.
For the first quilt (there are 3 quilts in this pattern)
I chose some of the red half plates with at least 2 pairs left and used them for the flowers.
These were drying on my kitchen table under the ceiling fan
after I wet them to remove the center paper templates.
Now what background fabric?
Cream withe dots? Black?
Then which green?
Too blue, too dark…
I had to go shopping for “greens”.
And now which cream background???
I think I got it.
Now to add leaves.
Do I need some grass too?
They’re cute just as they are (which is exactly how I designed them).
Why do I waste so much time second guessing myself???
Need something in the middle?
Nope! But a cute thought…
With the help of my little pony (LOL.. not sure why Jody had a horse in her quilt shop),
but she ordered the whole New Hope collection,
so, lucky me I was able to go there & choose between all of the reds for my bindings.
BTW, she still had quite a bit of New Hope left when I was there last week, 40%off!
Finally I decided to make the last quilt that was in my head
& in my computer that I designed for the pattern.
It’s soooo little, just 6″ wide,
but soooo cute!
Meet My Little Dresden Garden.
3 quilts, 1 pattern.
All with Tiny Dresden plates.
Just Keep Sewing…
