More Dresdens

Now that I think about it I'm really getting into making things with my Dresden ruler. I just love how uniform and simple they look in my table runner. They are versatile when making my Turkey's. Now they look even better in my new project, a pillow.

I bought the fabric as remnants at my local quilt store. They didn't have a very great selection of Christmas fabric left so when I saw these on the counter I scooped them up knowing I could do something with them. I love the colors!

Since I'm still learning and haven't been sewing lately quite as much as I would love to be I did a blanket stitch around the whole outer edge with a zig zag stitch around the center. Quilting is not my forte at the moment and I had some DMC Perle Cotton in Black and some Kreinik Red Metallic Floss I decided I would just stitch around the outer edge. The end result is so much more than I could have imagined.

I made the pillows pretty basic with an envelope style on the back so I could cover up my regular everyday pillows in our family room. This makes changing the decor so much easier and an even cost effective way out. I love how the house is starting to look like Christmas.

Have a Great Day!

You are becoming the Dresden Queen Judy. I like how your cushions are Christmassy without being too obvious!
