little finishes

 Finally I have finished the last block from the free BOM by Dawn Heese from Linen Closet quilts.
Now I just have to trim them and decide on sashing.  Hmmm fabric choices, could take awhile!

I made a few of these small dresden plates in rainbow, when I discovered a pattern in Quilts and More (Summer 2016) magazine - which was for a pincushion.  The block is about 8" but I decided that one pin cushion was enough.  And instead of using linen for the background I used shot cotton in grey for a more modern look.  That lead to the more modern look quilting.
So finally a little wall hanging, perfect for a gift - which is why I have kept it under wraps until now!
Happy quilting Sue.

  3. Your "little" blocks are a big finish. Well done. I like your modern approach to the traditional Dresden plate.

  4. Little finishes can lead to big ones and wishing you numerous big finishes in 2017. Wishing you all a very happy New Year.
