Monday Already?


I did manage a little bit of BOM Rehab over the weekend.
But it was just a little bit!
I started to work on my Bee Block.
Next month is my turn for a block...
and this is the one I am choosing!
I have been wanting to make a modern Dresden ever since I saw it over at
Hyacinth Quilt Designs blog last year.You can click on the link to see hers.

I didn't have the right ruler for what I wanted to do... and so, instead of waiting, which would require patience, I 
made my own...
but it didn't really work out like it should.
So, I will be ordering a 15 degree Dresden ruler this week.
(the difference is that the other Dresden ruler... the one I have makes a
block that is 20 blades and I need one to make 24 blades).
I am going to make plastic templates to add to my fabric packages 
that will go out to the girls in the Bees Knees group. 
I hope they will find it fun to play with!

What did you do?

I hadn't seen that version of the Dresden Plate before so thanks for the link. I really like the fabric you're using in yours. A great combination and a pretty block!

That's a very cool Dresden block! I'd like to give that one a try!

Sherry said...

That is quite a block, I am sure it would be fun but I am not going to be tempted to try it. I must master my unfinished projects first.

Cindy said...

Ha! I did the same thing - being impatient; not waiting for the ruler to arrive and tried using the lines on my regular ruler. Disaster!

Love your block, Sinta! Can't wait to see more.
