I have a lot of friends to thank for this one! Thank you MCM Bee friends for the blocks; thanks to several quilty friends who put up with my constant texts asking for background fabric and layout advice; our guild secretary took the only photo I have of the entire top; and a big thank you to Frank and his polling random salon customers to weigh in on the background color! It takes a village....ha ha!

These gorgeous Dresdens have brightened up my design wall since last December while I contemplated their fate. In the end, I decided to stitch them randomly on a widescreen print by Carolyn Friedlander in Pacific blue. It's difficult to capture the color on "film". You will notice it looks different in every picture here.
|my block...still without the center ;-)|
My friends may have selected the background color (between Pacific, Flame, Yarrow), but Max had major input on the block placement. I wanted to complete the top before Wednesday's guild meeting for show and tell and completely forgot to get a picture with all the blocks stitched down.
|see what I mean about the color?|
Ede was kind enough the share the photo she took at the meeting. I think we were holding it up sideways :-)) It's on the large side to fit the bed in my guest room.
There is so much negative space and my shoulder is still giving me trouble (that's my story and I am sticking to it!), so I have outsourced the quilting. I'm excited to get this one finished!
I won't forget to take pictures once it is quilted!
Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts! Have a wonderful weekend!
