It’s less than 3 weeks until the start of my
Dresden Quilt Workshop Quilt-Along
Are you getting ready?
I have some friends that are anxious to start.
If you already have your fabrics you could start now by spraying
& ironing all of them with Mary Ellen’s Best Press.
If you look in Dresden Quilt Workshop, pages 9 & 12,
you’ll see why I love it & how I use it.
Next, if you’re using the same fabrics as I did, Jen Kingwell’s Circulus & Lollies Sweet,
(I still have a limited number of fabric kits available on my website)
I suggest you cut a 3″ strip of each of the stripe fabrics.
I did this when I started my quilt and then hung each of them by a tiny hanger so that I could see each of the stripe prints.
I didn’t want to keep using the same print over & over and neglect others.
There are 48 different stripes!
I just happen to have these tiny hangers on the notions page of my website.
I’m all about having fun while I quilt… and a little bit of organization goes a long way!
That should keep you busy for a while
& you’ll become more familiar with all of your fabrics too.
And, you’ll be able to use the 3″ strips in your final border,
so don’t think it’s a waste of fabric.
It’s a win-win!!! Trust me!
And now, would you like to participate in a give-away?
A fabric give-away?
A Moda Fabric give-away?
These are fat 1/8’s (9″ x 22″).
The very talented Lissa Alexander of Moda sent these for me to share with you!
It’s Jen Kingwell’s newest line, Looking Forward, by Moda Fabrics.
Perhaps you’d like to add to this bundle & make a Dresden Quilt Workshop sampler with us?
To be eligible for a chance to win the fat 1/8 bundle,
go to the top of this page
& leave a comment answering one of the reasons or ways that I use Mary Ellen’s Best Press.
(Remember I mentioned above that the info is on pages 9 & 12 in Dresden Quilt Workshop.)
If you don’t have a copy of the book, go get one!
They’re on my website if you local shop doesn’t have them.
I will give you time to comment

The drawing will be next week, Wednesday morning.
Just Keep Sewing…
