August First Saturday

I get together with some quilting friends for coffee and conversation on the first Saturday of the month. Early on, we each declared a project we'd show progress on each month, such as making a block or two or moving the project forward in some way. Mine is the red Dresden plate and checkerboard project. This month my goal was to snowball the corners of all the Dresden blocks.

Done! All twelve of the blocks now have their blue corners.

What a difference the snowball corners make in the overall look of this project. I'm really pleased with the diagonal movement they add to such a rigid checkerboard layout.

Next month's goal will be to get the centers appliqued to all the Dresdens.

Linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict


  1. Adding the snowball corners really brings the design to life!

  2. Plus you get a star effect on the checkerboards!

  3. That is one of the prettiest dresden plate quilts I have ever seen. I like the addition of the checkerboard blocks.

  4. The snowballs turn it into a totally different quilt, that's for sure. It's beautiful.

  5. Those blue corners really make the Dresdens POP!
