I did it. I found a few extra minutes this morning and made up some Dresden blades. I love them. It's so much fun! These are the woven fabrics from the Shangra-la group. I have the charms for this also (well, and the jelly roll and some yardage, yada, yada, yada) and I will work on sewing up those next. I actually think they look good on my ironing board. I might have to get some more Dotties and make that the centers. So thanks to those people showing the Material Obsessions book, Sherri at A Quilting Life, and Venessa at V & Co. I am hooked on making these!
I wanted to follow up and show you a couple more examples of patterns using the X Block. The first one is called Venetian Tiles and the one below is called Last Mango in Paris. They are just 9 patches cut on an angle. I think they look a lot more involved but they are super easy.
I have the raffle baskets all ready to go now. With just one more to put cellophane on. I was waiting to add a book to it before I wrapped it up. Then they just have to have tags put on them stating the approximate value of the basket.
