All Shapes and Sizes Welcome!

Remember when I said I felt like cutting?

I evidently felt like cutting all shapes and sizes.
Triangles are good.
I picked up this pattern at Temecula Quilt Co.
while I was in Southern California
for the Road to California show.

Point Me.
DDIL came over on Saturday and we started in
on it! Mostly I ran interference with Ms. Evie Lou Who.
DDIL did get all of her blocks made though... but mine
are still "in waiting".

 I don't even know what you call this shape.

However, I do know what they turn into!
I seriously love Dresden Plates!

I have had this magazine out so long that it is tattered from
neglect. Then recently not only was Ms. Cupcake n Daisies 
working on this project but also Joanna from the Patriotic Quilter
blog. Of course, it was like stirring the pot. 
The more I saw of the progress the more that tattered magazine
called out my name.
I might not get to it right away, but at least I know I have it
started and the fabric designated...
beyond the point of no return!
Everything is cut and ready to go.
All I need is... time.

Remember the Rolling Stones song...
Time Is On My Side?
I have my doubts!

The Dresden quilt is so much fun to work on! The other patterns look great, too.

Looks like a great quilt to make! I'm making a Christmas Dresden Plate quilt, but I have a feeling it may take 'till next Christmas to finish it!

Jeanna said...

Congratulations on getting all the cutting done. I'm usually so excited to start the project that cutting is my least favorite part of quilting.

The Dresden quilt will be a nice one. Can't wait to see it come together.

I saw those two working on that Dresden quilt and just pulled out my. Magazine yesterday! I have decided on a teal background. Time to start pulling the fabrics together for the blades!

Hi Missy!

You KNOW I love to see what your creative hands are up to. I see your pics of the fire...and it makes me think of our boys. Scary stuff, and yes, like throwing a thimble of water on the raging fire.

Thanks for your visit today and always for leaving such sweet messages for me.

Love you!!!!


PS: looking over at my quilt from you right now! It's on the back of the granny chair just across the room where I am sitting. xxo
