I made this quilt while on retreat
 and loved the fabric...
it's a line by Moda: Mama Said Sew...
so I made a little pillow to go with my quilt

of course, the idea of making a whole
Dresden quilt with this fabric
is very tempting, lol!

Then, I knew I had to make something else, he he!,
so I went on a little "inspiration" search on Google
and found this fabulous quilt

Immediately, I knew I had to make one like it!!!
but after searching for countless hours,
and having no luck finding the pattern,
decided to shop for the fabric
and make something similar...

Okay, before we go on,
please put your sunglasses on...

Alrighty, this is it:
I tried several colors for the center squares,
and orange won... again, lol!

Oh my word, I AM IN LOVE
with chevrons...
Well, last night while on Pinterest,
 I found it again! and I'm so happy it lead me to the
designer's website: Victoria Findlay
... her work is fantastic...thanks Victoria for the inspiration!

And thank YOU for taking the time
to look at my little Dresden projects!
I hope you enjoy visiting the other ladies
sharing their Dresdens today!

Happy hopping,
