This is my final quilt made with those dresdens I received! I really love the way the colors pop off of a black background. Not wanting it to be just boring solid black, I did a patchwork background of a mix of "reads black" fabrics and I'm so happy I did! The dresdens are all appliquéd on top of the pieced background. After appliquéing each one, I was able to carefully cut away behind the dresden and use the background pieces I cut to create the center circles.
I really love the way this turned out! Collaboration quilts make me so happy.... I know who made some of the dresdens I received but not all (I wish we had all initialed the back of ours? or something). I'm looking forward to seeing what others have done with the dresdens they received.
Finished quilt is 40" x 42"

Love this quilt. Honestly I think dresdens may just be my favorite. Love the background you did. It adds so much to what already is a fabulous quilt.
The mixed background adds alot of interest - good going!
This is such a beautiful and cheery finish. It's the perfect layout for the dresden blocks.
The grey squares really make the pretty Dresdens pop..
Lovely quilt ..
Such a lovely design. Love it!
