Bits of Color

Ten more tiny dresdens have been added to the pile over the weekend. 
These little guys are so fun to make! They  just fly off the machine and its a breeze to appliqué them while watching TV. 
Between sewing on a binding or changing thread to quilt, I can whip up a few circles. 
The most surprising thing is that I willing bought a Kaffe fabric for the centers. I think it's a perfect match and I don't feel bad about turning it into Swiss cheese. And who knows, I made be able to utilize the rest of the fabric. 
I'm still not sure what layout I'll use but I do know that I'm going to need to make a few more dresdens. 
Last week I finish all the quilting and the binding on the signature quilt. 
It just needs a bath and it will be ready to receive. 
I might have grumbled and griped about this quilt but now that its finished I'm pretty happy with it. How can you look at this bright quilt and not be happy?
It was a labour of love and I'm pretty sure it will be well received. I'm also glad it's done so I can move on to my own projects. Maybe finish a few UFOs like my trees. 
Oh those never ending UFOs! If only I had fairies that came in to finish them. If only...

Have a wonderful day!
Take care, Brandie

The rose quilt is just beautiful. And you're so clever with the flower centers of the drezzies.
