This is my favorite block so far.  It was so fun to put together and I love the way it looks.  It makes me want to do a whole quilt of Dresdens.  Like on the cover of this book, which I picked up yesterday at Joann’s with my 50% off coupon.  I highly recommend it – based on just looking through it.  I obviously haven’t sewn anything from it yet.

I quilted in the ditch around the center circle and the outside of the flower, then a quarter inch out around the flower.

I took a shot of the back because that’s my favorite part of the quilting – how it looks on the back.  The picture doesn’t do it justice (stinkin’ camera).  I might go back and quilt in the ditch along the petals.  I haven’t decided yet if it needs it or not.

I’ve finished block number 5 as well, but I keep missing the sunny days to take pictures of it.  I’m not complaining, though.  I love these June Gloom cloudy days.  It almost makes the 100+ days coming later in the summer bearable.
