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.
