So yes, its been snowing, and its really cold! I don’t know about all of you but about this time of year I start to miss the sunshine 🙂 So, I thought, what could I do to brighten up my day? Well sewing something usually helps and sewing something bright is even better!
I’ve been dying to use a Kona Solids Charm pack so here it is!
I took one charm pack and cut each 5″ square into a 2.5″ rectangle.
Then I took my dresden ruler and cut twenty of them into dresden plate triangles.
I assembled the Dresden plate and machine appliqued it onto a black background (15.5″ square). I also machine appliqued the black center circle.
Then I took the remaining rectangles from the charm pack and made a piano key border for the dresden. It measures approx. 25 inches square.
I still need to decide how to quilt it. and what color thread to use! (the really tough choices:) I absolutely love this little mini quilt! It is so bright and cheerful! and so easy peasy… This is a perfect project for a dreary winter afternoon! Enjoy!
