Revisiting Dresden

I couldn't believe when I saw Rene's choice for December, the Dresden block. I can only remember making this block once before - in my beginning quilting class nearly 30 years ago. Wow. So really, I couldn't resist jumping right in and working on the block. And it was really fun! Love your palette, Rene! {btw, my center is 4", machine-appliqued on with a blanket-stitch.}

With this block done and soon to be mailed, I'll be saying farewell to the Mid-Century Modern Bee. I'd love to stay connected though with all of you, and will definitely share my finished quilt from April (yikes!) - probably in 2015. I look forward to seeing future finishes by the rest of you too! Thanks for the fun sewing together...


  1. I love the Dresden Plate pattern! I was thinking of doing some of my own, or even asking for it when it was my turn to be Queen because i hadn't made one for years either! Yours is really gorgeous Debbie! It is a such a lovely colour palette!
    We will miss you from our bee! And I look forward to seeing your next finish- you make such great quilts!

  2. All the best Debbie. Great block

  3. Gorgeous block, Debbie. I must confess I kept looking at it when selecting fabrics for mine. We'll miss you!


  4. Thank you Debbie for your block! I have it already hanging on my design wall waiting for its friends ;-)) We will miss you in the bee but will definitely be keeping in touch. Looking forward to meeting you in February at QuiltCon.

  5. so SO sorry to see you leaving the bee. We will miss you! Looking forward to meeting you next month (next month!!)
