Finishes...


This English paper piecing kit to make this sweet little pincushion was given to us at the Red Rooster Spring Retreat. I had a few minutes to relax today and made it up. It was really fun to make. I lined it with batting and filled it with rice. All done...

This is the dresden block that I finally completed. Fun, fun project and I really enjoyed making it. Now the dilema--Do I make it into a pillow? Do I add wool to the background and make it a doily? or...Do I frame it? My faithful followers, I need some input...what would you do?

Oh I would make it into a beautiful wall hanging. Either a quilt to hang or framed. My friend takes old dresden pates and quilts them into small quilts and they are wonderful.

What about a Dresden pincushion?

Now I'm excited to make that pincushion! That is so cute. As you know, I'm going to frame my dresden plate block :)

I think you need to add wool to it and make it a doily and give it to me.

Mary ~ I think it would be gorgeous with wool and framed. You've done a beautiful job!
