Ok, so I know I just blogged about Sew Happy Quilt last week but I just finished my last block yesterday!!! I am sew excited! There were several things I had never done before and I wanted to tackle when I signed up for SewHappyGeek’s QAL and I am happy to say, with this last block, I have conquered them all.
Making a Dresden Plate has been something I have been wanting to do for a long time and Jenna’s tutorial made it so simple!
Jenna is having a little giveaway for those of us participating in the QAL, we have to have our quilt tops finished by March 18th – that’s next Friday. I need to get my rear in gear! This afternoon, while Anne napped, I got the Dresden Plate made and I started playing on Ole Frog Eyes until I got the layout I wanted. What do you think?
The outer border will be a medium gray – I am loving Northcott solids and I have a beautiful one that matches the lighter shade of gray in the Rendezvous fabric. I am going to sash it in white and use red for the cornerstones. Tomorrow Anne and I will head to our LQS to get a yard of white and a fat quarter of the red. Hopefully I can get this together in time!
Are you quilting along with Jenna? I have had so much fun with this QAL and so glad that I stuck with it the whole time!
