Going Off On A Tangent...again

Have a look what I have been up to

Yep, I still have not started on that Windmill baby quilt that I am planning as I was too curious of how this would work.

I have all those leftover fabric strip from a Moda Jelly Roll (Chateau Rouge/French General). It has been sitting in the shelf and was collecting dust. The fabric is just lovely and I do not want to let it go to waste. On the other hand I did not feel like making a quilt out of it, as I very likely would not have enough (and I am not going to buy more fabric!).

These pieces, while a bit fiddly, come together very quickly. I did all those in one evening...just need to press them now and probably make a few more.










Well, you would have guessed it by now, I am making a Dresden Plate. Always wanted to do that and so far just had not got around to it. This will be a nice little Quick fix project (here is hoping!)


I like it...just need to fix up the wedge on the right as I did not pay attention to the light/dark theme.

So, Let's Bee Social and head over to Lorna's Sew Fresh Quilt blog to have a look what other people have been up to...and also linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Until next time

  1. Oh, this is great! I have never done a Dresden either. And now you make me want to! Love how you made the blades with two pieces, giving the illusion of curved piecing a circle. I love it!

  2. I love Dresdens, they look so complicated and make a lovely impact. The 2 tone effect is a great idea!

  6. What a great idea. I have a jelly roll that's just taunting me from the fabric shelf, but maybe this might be the answer!

  8. I just love your Dresdens! What a great way to use scraps. I'll bet this will be beautiful when finished. Do you have any ideas for how you'll set the blocks, or what color the background will be?

  12. I love the fabric selection and dresden idea. How big is the dresden and the size for each part of the dresden?

  15. Hi - how did you make them 2-tone? Did you sew together before cutting the wedge?

    1. Super easy. I used 2 jelly roll strips, stitched them together and used the Dresden wedge ruler. I think I cut this at 4 1/2". Please also see my free pattern on Craftsy
