I had wanted to do a deconstructed Dresden Plate quilt for a while and felt this would be a good way to show the fabrics off.
Glimma also works very well with Lotte's previous lines -I have used a turquoise Bella crosshatch for a few of the petals as well as the binding.
I managed to get two Dresden wedges out of each 5" charm square.
And with the tiny scrap offcuts left either side of these wedges, I sewed them together in pairs and sort of did a random border with them.
Quilting is monofilament over the Dresdens and then a variegated on the background.
And the back?
Not difficult to show; it was so windy the two shots above were the best of a bad bunch.
The rest look something like this.
These are beautiful, soft, muted colours to work with and I shall definitely be keeping my eye out for some of my favourites when they're available.
