A Dresden Collage

  August was my month for my Bee Vintage Group.  I asked the ladies to make me Dresdens.
This week I did a little mock up of the blocks I've received so far.   I'm excited about how it's coming together. 

A dresden is one of those patterns that involves lots of pieces, so having others help you make them (in the form of a bee) is awesome!  I'm not sure I'd ever tackle a whole quilt like this on my own.

 I really want to turn these into a bed quilt for my daughters' room.  Am I crazy?  I'm kind of panicking over all the white in the background.  Surely no 6 yr old could keep it clean, huh?  But it would look so pretty... What to do, what to do?!


UPDATED: Finished quilt can be seen HERE.


  1. I like it alot--even for a 6 yr. old.
    Maybe with something so pretty she'll be inspired to be more clean.

  2. White would be gorgeous! It would be washable, though you wouldn't want to do that too often. My youngest has a quilt with white background and it doesn't get too dirty. (Depends on what they use there room for, I guess. My girls don't play too much in their room so it doesn't get as dirty.) This is going to be such a pretty quilt!
