Friday Night Sew-In Results

Finally!  I get to post about progress on a project for the Friday Night Sew-In.  This is the first Sew-In I was able to actually participate in, despite signing up for previous 'Friday's'.  Something always seems to come up.  You know how that goes.  I was able to piece my reversible table topper/candle mat last night and applique the centers on today.  I am still trying to figure out how to quilt it.  I don't want to do a traditional binding going over all those points so I'd like to stitch right sides together and turn them.  My batting is pretty thin, maybe I'll quilt both halves.  Or maybe I'll quilt just one side.  Or maybe I'll attempt to quilt it after it's put together.  I won't get crazy with the quilting, just ditch and a few extra "rays".  Any thoughts on this would be appreciated!

I've never done a Dresden before and these were fun to piece, however I did not enjoy cutting these shapes with my template and rotary cutter.  I don't see myself making a large quilt with this design.  Maybe lots of little ones with English Paper Piecing.  Hmmmm.....

Until Next Time,


  1. They are so pretty! Even though they sound like they were a lot of work. I can't stop looking at them. lol.

  2. Love the Dresden's! They are fun to make. I have made two Dresden quilts so far.
