Going round in circles

Dresden attempt #1 by Petitselefants

I've said it before. I don't need another project. But how could I resist Lily's Quilts Dresden Quilt-along?

I've gone for a selection of French General fabrics - from the Rouenneries, Rural Jardin and Lumiere de Noel collections, mainly because my stash is practically bottomless and there's plenty to choose from without compromising on future quilt options with those fabrics. I'm just going for the one block version rather than six. If I'm just dipping my toe in the water, let's not go overboard!

Here's Lynne's gorgeous Sherbet Pips version. (Image from Flickr).

Fancy a Quilt-A-Long?

There are already lots of amazing versions popping up in the Flickr Group, including a very sweet mini version (using a charm pack) by Agnieszka.


  1. I love the French General fabrics. These look great, I like the way you are using all the floral designs.
    I was going to do a whole quilt, once I put the dresden together I didn't realise how big it was going to be, even though I knew the dimensions, so maybe I might just stick with making one, or possibly 4.

  2. Beautiful, they look great together.
    Bottomless stash is my dream now ;)(addicted, completely addicted)
    Thanks for mentioning my charm pack version. I'm having so much fun with Lynne's QAL.

  3. oh, this will be great Danielle! can´t wait to see your block sewn and quilted!! and: it´s spring, so we do need lots of projects to keep up with natures springyness :-)
