Catching up....

Gosh, a week as gone by already without a post...

Some days life just takes over, and before you know it a week as passed.
Well, I haven't really done much in this passed week.
Just two blocks for my Country Charmer quilt along with Lynn, of Sewn Wild Oaks....you can check her gorgeous quilt by the link on my sidebar...

I was hoping to have more done....perhaps during this week...

I'm still working on my Vintage Dresden quilt border....this is going to take some time, but it's such great fun picking fabrics, seeing what looks good together, so there's no rush. 

Here, you can see how I'm applying the nearly half Dresden's...fiddly work, but I think it will be worth it.

I'm going to applique the half's on around the border, then I go back and carefully unpick the spaces when I need to and tuck the raw ends in and restitch the seam up....phew!
Then I'll work out how I'll do the corners....thinking cap on....nothing like making it hard for myself...oh well it'll keep me out of trouble...

Have a great week, keep busy and stay out of trouble....

  7. The Country Charmer blocks are great, Julia. That will be a wonderful quilt.
    Your dedication to doing that border on your Dresden quilt is going to pay off in a big way. It was already a lovely quilt, but your border elevates it beyond what most of us ever achieve!

  14. I have been Watching your dresden quilt grow it's looking fabulous, have your thought of doing the nine patch ina square for the border corner, ie- then the full borders would be the de-constructed dresden.
