Dare to Dresden Blog Hop!!



           Hello Dare to Dresden Blog Hoppers :):) Welcome to my creative ...HAPPY ...place :):) I am so very excited to be on this hop with everyone!!!! I would like to send a special thank you to Christine from Quilt Monster in My Closet and Madame Sam for hosting this wonderful blog hop.  I have the list of the other blogs for today at the end of this post. Just click on their names.             
            I am also having a give-a-way at the very end of this post. So, stay tuned to the end...

            So, I have a few Dresden plates to show you...above is the little quilt I made about 10 years ago. The plates are 4 inches...baby plates :):)
I used my stash of 30s fabric to make this cute little quilt....and it is one of the few quilts I have ever hand quilted :):)

                                                           The quilt measures 20 x20
                                                Little Miss Daisy wanted to pose for you :):)
I decided to use this tool to make my new Dresden quilt with . 
I cut out some wedges!! .....Kaffe any one?? :):)
 Stitched them up....
I then had the block ready to sew down....I had planned on making a lot of these blocks....I have always wanted to have a bigger Dresden plate quilt.... but, after just putting this one block together...hmmm... I think I'm NOT going to make a bigger quilt after all. ....So, a few pillows will have to do. 
..but I think it will make a lovely pillow :):)

.......I am so excited to say that the Dresden plate design also found it's way into my mixed media stuff too :):)
                                This was a white 10 inch by 10 inch canvas when I started :):)
                                         .......the plate is made out of scrapbook papers......
Ta-Da:):):) Ink, paint, glitter, stamps, paper, and markers... :):) I really LOVE the way it turned out.

Now ...on to my give-a-way.... I am giving away 3...yes!! 3 prizes!!!!
 The above patterns I bought and will just never get to them..so I want to pass them along:):)
THIS GIVE-A-WAY IS NOW CLOSED:):)

All you have to do is leave me a comment...and if you want a greater chance at winning ...become a follower. Leave me a comment that you are a follower too....and your name will go in the hat twice :):) Make sure in your comment you tell me which prize you would like.
I will close this give-a-way in one week :):)
