Dare to Dresden & Giveaway

I had to join this blog hop - DRESDENS!  I've loved them since the first time I laid eyes on them!  Thank you to our cheerleaders, Mdm Samm and Christine, for organizing this.  I am honored to share my day with all these talented folks:





OK, back to me and my love affair with Dresden Plates.  It started about 8 years ago when my guild had a workshop to make stack and whack Dresden Plates from a single fabric.  I loved the variety of plates we could get from just one fun print, and I made a quilt for my younger sister for her college graduation.  I love that when I visit her now, I get to sleep under it.  I quilted the words "MY SISTER, MY FRIEND" in the yellow border around the center plate, so that's what the quilt is called.
This photo is from back before I added the binding. I really need to get better photos of my quilts!  Hand quilted. 
Next, I got excited about plaids and stripes and homespuns, so I made a Plaid Dresden for my twin sister's vacation home in the New Hampshire woods.  Unfortunately, that was two years ago and it is still just a top, not a quilt, but it is on the short list for quilts to finish.

forgive the wrinkles...

For this blog hop, I wanted to make several projects.  First, a Dresden Plate Color Wheel clock for my office.  I fear that I am a bit color challenged - it took me FOREVER to pick out the 12 fabrics for the color wheel.  I finally just said ENOUGH and stuck with whatever was on my ironing board at the time. Not perfect, but they would do.  I got it stitched down and wouldn't you know, I BROKE the clock that I was going to use!  ARGH!  But then I found a clock kit in my sewing room (there are benefits to being a hoarder who buys things on sale just in case I'll need them some day), and managed to make a clock anyway.  Again, it isn't quite what I had in mind, but it'll do.
There are corner tabs on the back to hang it...
...but for now, I just have it sitting on my mantle in my office. 
Then I found a stack of 5" charm squares of polka dots and stripes that I had pulled out to make something for myself.  Aha!  A Dresden Plate pillow!  I cut out all the pieces and realized there was still quite a bit of each of those charm squares left after those first cuts.  I decided to cut baby Dresden pieces from the leftover scraps.  They were so cute, I forgot all about the pillow and sewed them together and made a bib, backed with a green knit from a favorite t-shirt that I ruined with a bleach spot the very first time I washed it.  It seems every third woman in my life is pregnant so I'll have plenty of options when it comes to giving this away.

Speaking of giving away...I've been trying to straighten things up in my sewing room, and I've come to the conclusion that it just isn't going to look neat until there is less stuff down there.  Wanna help me out and take some of it off my hands?  I have two things to give away:

1) Victoria Findlay Wolfe's new book, 15 Minutes of Play: Improvisational Quilts - I bought a copy for myself, and then my mom bought me a copy for Christmas.  I was tempted to keep both copies - it's that good! - but no, I'll share.

2) Assorted scraps - I have so many beloved scraps that they are overflowing every scrap bin and bag that I have.  I've stuffed these into this cute Chinese take-out container.
What's inside?
An eclectic mix of scraps of various sizes - fun, fun, fun!
It's easy to enter to win - leave a comment letting me know which giveaway you'd like to be entered to win, either BOOK or SCRAPS or BOTH.  I'll get some computer generated help to choose random winners on February 1.  I'll ship anywhere in the world.  Until then, enjoy the hop!

Oh, I love your dresdens, all of them! Gorgeous quilts, and cool clock and bib! I would love to be entered for the book, as I was just eyeing it the other day.. I am unfortunately buried under my own heap of scraps so probably won't be needing anymore for some time! ;) But what a cute way to package them! xo

I love that Stack n Whack Dresden. The colors are great. I thought of making a dresden in the Stack n Whack style, but I didn't have enough of any one fabric, not the time to make a large quilt. The clock is perfect too.

Teri said...

What great ideas you have....love your sisters quilt.....

evelyn said...

I have an ugly clock-now I know how to make it pretty! Wonderful quilts. Your stack and whack makes me want to copy. The homespuns-well, those are some of my favorite fabrics. Books or scraps, both are nice giveaways.

Lyn said...

I loved your clock. I love the take-out. Thanks for being part of the blog.

Quilt n Queen said...

I love all your Dresdens, the clock is amazing, the bib is darling...both quilts are stunning. Thanks for sharing in the hop...great job!! Thanks for the chance to win either giveaway. Happy stitching, Pauline

Betteem said...

The Dresdens are beautiful and I'd like to make a clock like yours. The book is my choice. Thanks a lot!

Suze said...

I love the Dresden clock. The yellow on the one Dresden quilt is stunning and you hand quilted it - wow! The UFO Dresden quilt for your twin is wonderful too! If it doesn't make it to NH, you can send it to OK - just kidding. I have a book and a template, so I can make my own. I love that you made a baby bib. I'd consider that, but I talked to my daughter today and the youngest grandchild is taking his diaper off. Looks like potty training is around the corner, so bibs are probably not far behind. I don't know if Dad would go for a Dresden on his young man or not. I think a plaid or polka dot Dresden would be adorable on a young man. Thank you for taking time in this busy hectic world to blog and participate in the blog world to inspire fellow creators.

ColorSlut said...

OMG Dresdens are so freaking hard. IMPRESSED.

I'd love scraps.

carla said...

Your dresdens are so cute---your clock is totally ingenuous and that bib is the cutest thing ever. :) I would love to be entered for both the book and the fabric, please. :) Thanks bunches.

Leah said...

Lovely quilt. I really like the sashing and the 9 patch cornerstones.

Brenda said...

Your choices for the Dresden are so fabulous and inspiring! I have one I am hand stitching tucked away for a couple months, I am going to start working on it today again. I would be thrilled to win either of your wonderful give away choices! Thanks for sharing.

Colette said...

Love, love, love the clock! What a great way to use a Dresden!

B Greene said...

Your Dresden clock is genius - GENIUS!! I love it!!! Thanks for sharing your creativity with us and thanks for the chance to win. The book would be my first choice as it has been on my wishlist ofr a bit, but I love scraps, too!

Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting said...

Wonderful Dresdens, Erin. The yellow sisters quilt is so fun and bright. Great clock, too! I have dresden templates, but, I haven't made but one block yet, for a sampler quilt (still haven't finished that quilt, either). Love Victoria's book. I'll have to get it some day.

Julie Fukuda said...

I'm glad I didn't miss this post after all. I honestly don't know how you find the time for all you do! I would say with 160 comments all ready, It probably doesn't matter what I might want.Does the book require a machine?
I've never seen a stack-and-whack dresden. How many repeats would it require?

StarFond said...

Both! Love your clock.
