Dare to Dresden Blog Hop

Link here for Dare To Dresden Schedule


I signed up for this blog hop because I love the Dresden block...It is a first time for me and it was a little bit of a challenge but it was fun.  If you have had the opportunity to stop by the other blogs to see their Dresden entries, they are all absolutely stunning.  Thanks to our cheerleader Christine of Quilt Monster in My Closet for all she has done to make this blog hop a success.  And thanks to Madam Samm at Sew We Quilt for providing us with the opportunity to strut our stuff.  Today, I am debuting my Dresden blocks along with the blogs listed below.  I decided to make a traditional Dresden and I used fabrics from my stash of African fabrics and batiks.  Why lime green...just love it as a background and it really brightens up the black and white.   Grab a cup of tea or whatever is your pleasure and sit back and enjoy!
