I love it! Perfect way to use a mini dresden and I love the center of the flower!! Fun scrappy background too
This is so cute. I love the scrappy background and dresden!
Carolmarie it is about 4 1/2" across...same size as the ones in the corners of you border. Thanks
SO dang cute! What is a Yankee Swap BTW? I also love the little green fringe you have going around the center! Wondering how you did the "joy". If you tell me you did it without a template I'm going to scream. LOL.
Terryt1955 no screaming needed;-). I found a font generator online and found one I liked and used the largest it could be (144). Printed it off and traced it backwards onto my fusible interfacing, ironed onto fabric and cut it out! And then did a small zig zag to sew it on. The green fringe came out of an error but I love it! For some reason the circle was too small, even though I used same everything as I did for Carol's...but it is a pain to make. So was trying to think of a way to avoid remaking and the fringe was born. Yankee swap...let me see if I can find a link to explain as it would be easier.
A Yankee swap is similar to what we call a White Elephant party
Love the scrappy border!
what a great little scrap buster project. Love it!
That is so pretty! I love the spring time feel especially when it is snowing outside!
Love your finish for this- really great- this will be such a hit at the Yankee Swap!- do you do "steals" with yours- because if so I have a feeling this would get stolen a lot! We keep our steals to 2:)
Mymble thank you and yes we do steals with no limits. There are some men in group so they may pass unless they think their significant other would like it...
True You will have to update and let us know all the details!- wow steals with no limits- I surely would have lost the purse I "stole" at our Christmas swap;)))))
Awwww, now did I miss this sweet little mini? I love it, Mary. I envy your applique ability - that is one of the things I want to learn in 2014 and you are a great inspiration for me!
Mymble for the first time ever I got #1 at one before Christmas and I stole cool hand painted wine glasses and gave them to my sister and bil, which is why I stole them;-). Will let you know how it goes.
Caribousmom thank you...I love doing appliqué in small quantities and as a change of pace. Do love what you can create! You will like it and rock at it with you eye and talent:-)
Beautiful finish. Love the backing fabric and just everything about this mini!
HawkFan thank you I am really pleased with it...kind of want it for me but since I would then have left than 24 hours to come up with another idea;-)
I would definitely have a hard time parting with it. Too bad you don't have any orphan blocks lying around you could use ;D
I could give my pillow!
I love it! Sew fresh and happy.
