After 1.5 hours in the dentist’s chair this morning, I gave myself a gentler work schedule this afternoon.  Making & attaching bias binding (all will become clear soon!).

In the meantime, I thought I’d show you something else I’ve been working on this week.

Dresden Sunburst

In keeping with my ‘dresden’ theme this summer, I made the Missouri Star Quilt Company’s Dresden Sunburst pattern.

This pattern uses a layer cake and background yardage.  I used the oh so pretty Rambling Rose collection by Sandy Gervais, available from Quilter’s Quest.

These prints really ‘speak’ to my love of all things vintagey – I even love the brown!!

As usual I went off pattern a bit and used the leftover pieces from the layer cake to piece borders and fill the central negative space with an EPP mini dresden.

This quilt is now receiving the magical long-arm treatment (squeeeee!). Can’t wait to see how it turns out!

Tonight I lit the fire (2nd one this week, brrrrr!) and settled myself down with some hand sewing binding!

Hope you’ve had a fab Friday!
