Old Dresdens

I have finally finished all ten Dresden blocks. I've been carting them around with me for awhile. It feels good to have them ready for the next step. Maybe tomorrow they'll turn into a quilt top. Then again, maybe not.

Also at the top of the picture, you can see the stars I've been working on. I tried making a deal with myself to finish two of those a day and well, that hasn't worked as well as I planned.
I'm easily distracted (velvets).
I've been sketching and dreaming up a quilt to showcase those velvets. This is when I wish I could draw.

I'm learning to embrace the imperfection in each of these blocks. At first they bothered me. Now I think the flaws make them look more antique.
I will start researching an age appropriate quilting for this top. I'm kind of excited about that.

So I'll leave you with this little tease. Till tomorrow.

Take care, Brandie
