First try at Dresden Blocks

I didn't need a new project. I did need a cover for a small table. It was either paint the table or cover it and I decided this was more fun. I also need to clean out my overflowing scrap bins. This project helped a lot with that. I used 330 different fabrics in this little quilt top. It all started out as just an idea one evening. Then I started fussing with my scraps to see if it would work and by the next evening it was all pieced together. Pretty quick.

I love your use of colors! The background really makes them pop too. I've been wanting to try a dresden plate pattern too. My Grandmother used it a lot so it reminds me of her. Now she was a great quilter. She did a lot of hers completely by hand, wish I had the time to even try.
