Dresden Mini Finish



Can I just say that I love this little quilt!




This is one of those quilts that I kept putting off making.
I'm not a huge fan of 30's prints...
I don't want to work with the little blades in the Dresden plates....
What am I going to do with it once it's finished?...

Then the day came....


Out came the fabric and
the mini plate template
and the fun began.

 


Why did I wait so long to make this cute little quilt?



30's are still far from my favorites,
but they grew on me just a bit.

 

Thanks, Mom, for the kit and pattern you bought for me.

It's a keeper!!

Adorable! I actually LOVE 30s prints all mixed together like this. They are just perfect for scrappy quilts. This one is so cheerful looking.

It's a perfectly happy little quilt. I am like you with the 30s fabrics and yet I LOVE every quilt I see made with them.

I love this quilt so cheery. Can I ask how big the blades are and did you need a special ruler?

Yes you may say you love it, LOL It is so sweet, what size is it? I love 30's but don't often use mine:(

I am not a big fan of 30's prints either but yours are not the usual pastels. Your quilt looks really nice.

:) It's so funny when that happens, isn't it? I really love it when something I've been balking at ends up grabbing my fancy.

That really did turn out cute. I'm not a fan either, but they do make great baby quilts. Especially with an old pattern.
