Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2019


For some time now I have a hankering to work on some Dresdens but was not sure what to do. There is a plan in my head for a medallion quilt using a giant Dresden in the middle but that is not about to happen any time soon. But when I was looking for an RSC project for this year I realised that Dresdens would be a great use of some of my scraps.
So here are my first four blocks bringing me right up to date.



I found aqua to be a very elusive colour in my scrap box although it does not look too bad in this photograph. The yellow spot that I am using for the centre of all my Dresdens is much yellower than the picture shows though. I am aiming for 20 blocks - they will be 9" finished - so two years of RSC. Am feeling very pleased that all the grey blocks and centre circles are cut and ready to go.
Now I need a plan for the blocks I made last year and so far I am not feeling very inspired! No doubt something will come to me.

I love Dresdens and your pretty ones are going to be a lovely quilt. I love all the pretty blocks you have stitched thus far. Isn't it fabulous how scraps transform into the prettiest of pretties.

Lovely work. My friend and I did Dresdens a couple of years ago for our RSC and it worked out well x
