Today is the day! It’s my day on the Dare to Dresden blog hop hosted by Madame Samm
and Christine from Quilt Monster in My Closet
! A huge thank you to both of them for organizing this event.
This is my first time to participate in one of Madame Samm’s hops so I’m super duper excited. I thought this would be a super simple project for me. Boy was I wrong! My brain just did not want to cooperate. I think I tried to hard to come up with something “different.” I really didn’t want to make a traditional Dresden.
I do have a couple blocks to share. I’m not sure I love either one of them but I think that’s ok. I’m sure I’m not the first person to make something they don’t love. We can’t always be successful at everything, right? The first one is probably my favorite.
What do you all think? It’s not bad but just not exactly what I had pictured in my brain.
Here’s attempt number two. Warning…this one is definitely not a traditional Dresden. I had to paper piece this one.
Hannah said this one reminds her of something out of Candy Land. I like the concept of this one but I need to tweak it. It isn’t exactly what I had pictured either.
I do have one project that I’m super proud of…The Cube pincushion. I think I must have used up all my Dresden energy when I created this one.
Hopefully you can see the Dresdens on the corners. You can find a tutorial for The Cube here
or download the PDF here
I hope you all aren’t too disappointed with my Dresdens. I kinda feel like I let you guys down but hopefully not.
Make sure you check out all the other hoppers…
