I should really title this post, “What I was working on when I should have been packing for the Sewing Summit.” But that is a bit wordy. After cutting into my Heirloom fabric for the Dresden mini quilt, I decided I couldn’t wait any longer to make something larger out of it. I first saw this design on Ashley’s blog. It’s such a great pattern to showcase prints.
I cut my squares to 7.5″ (unfinished) and my sashing is 1.75″ wide (unfinished). The sashing is Kona Stone. I think it’s just a beautiful quilt for fall this year, which has arrived in full force here in Chicago. This is the Morton Arboretum.
I hope to finish this quilt when I return from the Sewing Summit! I leave bright and early Friday morning and won’t land back in Chicago until midnight Sunday night. I can’t wait! I plan on blogging all about it when I return, but for those of you that can’t wait, I’m sure I will also be updating on Twitter while I am there. Have a great weekend everyone! (And don’t forget to enter the Pure Elements giveaway – I’ll pick a winner tonight!)
