The first time I saw the Denyse Schmidt line at Joann's, I knew I wanted to make it into a dresden quilt. But I didn't want to make a traditional dresden with lattice and posts, so I went for a strippy quilt instead. The red polka dot on front and the cherry print on back reminds me of Mary Engelbreit.
I machine appliqued the blocks with a tiny buttonhole stitch. Then I hand stitched inside each red circle with white perle cotton, and machine stitched the binding. LOVE the machine binding method. It saves a ton of time. I would still be sitting on the couch sewing it down with raw fingers instead of posting about it, if I hadn't done it that way. The quilt measures about 55x70.
I think it looks fresh and modern and kind of vintage all at the same time. Does that make sense?
Yesterday my daughter and I went thrift store shopping and I brought home a few goodies. As soon as I'm done fighting with the glue gun, I will show you my little makeover. Meanwhile, these were perfect, just as I found them, and are full of the fall season.
Pyrex. It just never gets old. You can bet these will be on my Thanksgiving table next month. Have a great weekend!
