This is my progress so far on Jina Barney's design for the Alpine Quilt Group 2010 quilt. This is a free quilt project open to anyone and I have found it to be lots of fun. If you remember (I'm sure you don't) I had black sashing helter-sketer in it last month. You can see it here. I took the black dot strips out except for the one around the middle. I'm much happier with it the way it is now.
So this is Jina's quilt above with May flowers placed above and below the April baskets. Isn't Jina's quilt great! Well, I hope Jina doesn't mind but I decided to change my version up a little.
I have been making Dresden blocks for other current projects. So I've had my ruler out and I've been making Dresden points in all sizes. And I've enjoyed using my scraps and having a great time with my Dresdens, plus I have been seeing them everywhere!
I decided to use Dresden blocks instead of Jina's May Flowers for my quilt. I don't want to stop making them and I think it will go well as the May Flowers substitute. I'll have them finished and sewn in by next week to show you.
Here are some of my chained Dresden petals. They are absolutely addicting. I do have other projects to sew but I'm having a hard time pulling myself away from these!
