When I was deciding on what to make from Tonya Alexander's book "Stash Lab" I wanted it to be something that I felt I could make my own, and that would go with the decor in my house. I chose her Dresden quilt project, because I thought It would be fun to do , and it had applique, which I love!

 

I had so much fun picking fabrics from my scrap bins and shelves, and decided on just doing three blocks. Sorting through my wool shelves, I found a lot of different colors and textures to make my leaves, and the vines are from an old army blanket. For the centers of the dresdens, I decided to do penny circles! After all the handwork, I felt a little hand quilting was in order as well!

You will want to go look at Tonya's blog, http://eyecandyquilts.blogspot.com/ to see what she made, just in case you missed it! I'm planning on doing another of the projects from "Stash Lab" myself, so keep watching, and don't forget to use the #mystashmystyle when you post your project! If you don't do Instagram, just email your picture to me at woolenwillowdesigns@gmail.com!

I finally had some time to lay out the "Churning Stars" blocks from my book...in hopes to get them all sewn together this weekend...no luck with that, but my sewing machine is still calling! Here it is up on the design wall...

And here is the runner from my book, made by one of my Wednesday stitching friends!

I love the fabrics she chose!

Today was my day to watch little Henley! Growing too fast, and on the move all day! Grammie is pooped, so have a good night and get those #mystashmystyle projects done and share them! We are very excited to give you a little more time, and see what you have made!

Good night!

Jeni

  1. Your Dresden runner reminds me so much of the one I made for a wedding gift last October - minus the applique. The newlyweds really liked it!
