Dresdens......

I recently took part in a swap.... the focus of the gift being a dresden plate... 

my allocated partner likes French General fabrics....

... of course I had to play with quilting.....


... on every blade......

... the back was fun ....


.... and this all became a clock.....


... and a pincushion with an itsy bitsy mini dresden....


... and because it is around Easter a potholder/mug rug in similar fabrics....


These went to Keryn... a new blogger friend of mine.... who has the mooooostt delightful Christmas decorations  and beautiful quilts etc... she also has a "I'm not moving it" sale....  go get tempted.....

Thanks to Peg and Shez for organising this ultra fun swap...

Righto, Gotto Go..... quilting, stitching... coffee....
