Small Dresden Quilt

I finished this quilt before the Christmas rush and then forgot to show it. I'm so happy with the way it turned out. The colors are so bright and happy. As usual I did a crazy amount of hand quilting :)

I'm thinking of opening up my etsy shop again and featuring quilts and small sewn items. This might be my first offering, though I'm not sure about pricing. Need to do some research and see what other hand quilted items go for. Any advice would be appreciated!

We are planning on working on the kitchen cabinets this weekend, sanding and repainting. Yesterday I cleaned out the hall closet (which is a big, walk-in) and also weeded out old papers and files. Aren't we productive? It's just the New Year thing and will fizzle out, I'm sure! But we will run with it and get as much done as we can before that happens:) Oh, also yesterday, I went to the garden center and bought some seeds to start. Just perennial flowers for now. I'll start annuals in February and March. Really can't wait!

I hope you all have great and productive weekend too!

Your little Dresden quilt is beautiful Cindy.
It looks fabulous with the hand quilting. I don't think I would be able to part with it.
I hope you gets lots done over the weekend.

Your quilt is just beautiful! Don't underprice yourself, the workmanship is superb! I admire your energy! So many things done. I am still working on putting away the last of the Christmas decorations, but I do feel the urge to purge. Hope you share your cabinets with us when you are done! Hugs, Karen xx

I so admire your quilts Cindy. This one particularly because it is in my favorite colors. Beautiful! I have been working on my Valentines for an Exchange. I hope to have them made and ready to post information by Monday. It will be a One to One, very simple swap, but anyone can have an Exchange as well with small ornaments or Valentines to swap. Enjoy your weekend! Elizabeth
