Before we took off for Badon Hill I took this stack of fabric out of my stash and began to work with it. I actually scrambling last Thursday morning to get some solid crafty time in before we left. Jack was sleeping away the morning and I needed some peace and quiet relaxation time before another camping trip.
I cut out a bunch of 6.5 inch squares and about 180 3.5" Dresden plate fan blades.
A little chain piecing on my sewing machine later and I had three inches of thread left on the bobbin and a pile of blades in need of pressing.
I was pretty proud of finishing all of my Dresden blades before the bobbin thread ran out - that is what we call a win :)
I decided to machine stitch the plates down rather than hand stitch. I like the little extra depth it gives the blocks.
I only got this far by the time I needed to drag Jack out of bed.
Most of these aren't stitched down yet but I'm really liking how its turning out. Yay for color!
