The Sew We Quilt Dresden Blog Hop

It is time to share what I have been working on in the Sew We Quilt Dresden Blog Hop!

I couldn’t wait to make a runner out of some Dresden’s out of my the Seaglass color story from my Bella Collection for Blend Fabrics!  I hadn’t tried Dresdens in just the aquas and greens in this collection yet…

Whiel rumaging through my rulers I found some Laundry Basket Dresden Templates that inspired the star inserts – I highly recommend them.  They were such fun to play with and I liked the crisp white triangles against the soft prints.

The backgrounds are Patrick Lose prints.  I saved the emerald green Bella print for the border for higher contrast.

Visit all the other blogger’s sites to see the pretty Dresdens they have posted!  There is such a wide variety!

Happy sewing!
