Dresdens


It all started out because we were asked to bring two old-fashioned blocks, done in 30's fabrics, to the quilt meeting. I figured it would be a great way to give paper-piecing a try with no commitment. Well, the joke was on me. One, and I was hooked. My little handwork case comes everywhere with me these days. I stitch them up, and everyone else likes to arrange the spokes for me. Teamwork!
