Do not adjust your monitor, yes, I have had my blog revamped. So not only is that being revealed today, so it my secret sewing project.
Here's the story. I saw a project posted on Bumble Beans site back in the fall. In January, Carol, from Fabrics Etc and I were tossing around ideas and I remembered how fun Vic's project was. We wandered and pondered and ended up with dots instead of stripes. I emailed Vic to find out a few details of her piece and she informed me she was sworn to secrecy because it was being published. Great for her, not for me. We loved it so much, I went ahead and made my own version, but I promised I would not publish any pictures or hang the piece up until the magazine went live!
Victoria went wild with stripes, and I am calling my version, Dotty Dresdens. This is a fun project, and the dotted fabric was a border print. I was able to use the center of the yardage for the backgrounds, so nothing went to waste on this. Oh and how I'm loving Vic's new fabric line, it too, has a glorious border print that would be fabulous for this same design.
So I hope you enjoy my version, I've been busting to share it with you all. I never would have chose these fabrics but now that it's finished, I LOVE the green and grey combo. The colors give a fresh twist to an old pattern. But be warned, use of a Dresden template can become addictive.
The daffodils are blooming, my miniature tulips are busting out, the cherry trees are bursting into a riot of color. Enjoy your Easter weekend,
ps, is my blog too busy with the sides done with a quilt? Please let me know, as everyone's monitor will look a little different.
