Design wall Monday 9/2/13

Remember the background fabric dilemma, here?
And all those pretty Dresden pieces, here?
Here's what they look like on my design wall today:

I've solved the ground color problem. I've chosen Kona cotton in color Cappuccino, a luscious brown that really makes the colors pop. I'll applique these rows onto the brown ground. Hopefully I can get this top completed this month.

There's a lot you can do with the Dresden shape besides plates and fans.  I have lots of ideas so maybe some of them will show up on future Design Wall Monday posts.

Linking up with Judy over at Patchwork Times; check out what everyone else has on their design walls today.


  1. What a beautiful colors. I love it!

  2. I love your fan blades! Laid out like that, they look like neckties to me.

  3. What a great idea for using fan blades. I love it!

  4. Gorgeous I love it.....thanks for the inspiration. Marie

  5. Yes that is one of the many ways to use those blades. Love the colors!

  6. Great use of the Dresden pattern.


So sorry to have to use word verification, but the spam has gotten unbearable lately.
