I've pieced all the small Dresden blocks for Dresden Doilies. I still need to make and appliqué the red centers, they look done because I took this picture of them sitting on my red ottoman!!
These blocks have 14 blades and finish around 4 1/2".
Now it's time to get going on Canasta, for Sinta and Sherri's Schnibbles Sew Along. Eleven days until the end of the month, I think I'm good, there's not much going on at my house from now until the parade.
I'm making my version of Canasta using Fig Tree fabric. I have a bin of Fig Tree layer cakes, fat quarters and fat eighths that need to be used.
So I dug through all the fabric and put together over 30 different "perfect" combinations of fabric. I plan to make the 61 block version of Canasta.
I'm also thinking about changing up the basket pattern a little, maybe making some different baskets instead of 61 baskets exactly alike and exactly like the pattern, shocking, I know!
Times a wastin', I hope you're able to squeeze in this project before the end of the month too!
