I finished piecing my Dresden yesterday and now to figure out how to quilt it! I used brown Essex Linen for the centres,sashing and borders and the warmth of the fabric really allows the Dresden blocks to shine! The JOL fabric collection that I used for the Dresden blocks is one of my favorite winter themed collections and I’m really glad I took the time to make something special with it.
I was out sweeping off the ice rink this morning, it was –28’c with a –38’c windchill. I could see the ice is about 12” thick now so very safe to walk on. You should hear it cracking though, I can hear it in the house its so loud as it echoes across the lake! I’m just so happy to see the sun shining again!
