Charming Dresden

I finished a quilt! It's a small quilt but still--it's all done! If you haven't tried Darlene Zimmerman's Easy Dresden Ruler, you're missing something! This block goes together so easily and you can use a Charm Pack--thus the name, Charming Dresden!

When I made a table runner out of a Kaffe Facett Charm Pack with 4 of these blocks here, I loved it so much, I developed a class out of it and scheduled to teach it at my local quilt shop. I really wanted to make another one so I made another 4 blocks with Moda's colorful line, "Ladies Sewing Society" which I've fallen in love with. But these 4 blocks were made into a 36" x 36" wall hanging so the ladies who took the class could chose which they wanted to make.

In getting ready to teach the class, wanting to have plenty of sample parts and pieces for demonstration purposes, I started yet another 4 blocks in autumn colors. I received a call from my cousin the other day and found out I've been "chosen" to host Thanksgiving this year! I'll have to get this finished fast!   ;-)

Thanks to Judy Laquadara for giving us all the opportunity to show off our design walls!
