Design Wall Daisies

Top of the morning quilty friends!  Hope you each had a wonderful weekend filled full of whatever makes you giggle.   I didn't get to stick to my weekend plan of quilting on the frame.  As soon as I touched my quilting machine ...she broke.  Oh well what can you do but whine to Mr. Podunk, ask him to fix it and move on.  This was the perfect opportunity to work on a UFO.  There's plenty to choose from in various stages of completion.  But the one below caught my eye.
A cute little stack of 50 or more mini dresdens.


If you've been hanging around my blog for awhile you probably remember my Daisy quilt.  Not sure why this one became a UFO because I LOVE IT.  It might have been the applique.  Due to the little dresdens being randomly placed on the quilt top over seams it's a little bit of a pain to machine stitch them to the quilt.   It was a even trickier to glue baste them in place as the quilt hung on the wall.


 All basted and ready to stitch.


 Awe now look at that, so springy and cute.  Why did I ever stop working on this?

  14. What a bum deal about the machine. I hope it gets restored to good health. Those mini Dresdens are adorable, and the top is even more so. I can understand why appliquéing them would be a beast, but it's going to be worth it.

    I've taken on the 365/366 circle challenge but now I see dresdens calling my name...but I think I'd best ignore them and admire yours!

  31. I absolutely love this quilt! I think I might have overdosed on Dresden plates as a child or something because they don't speak to me very often. But this is so fresh and is the shot of Spring that is needed about now. Thanks for sharing it with us.
