So I have finally taken the first step towards real quilting. Not brave enough to sew a quilt I focused on how to sew a block first and see how it goes. This one is called the Dresden Block and it was fun to piece together. Finding 20 colors to go all around was tricky but I like the results.

Now I need to find some nice white or beige fabric for the back and for the circle in the middle. My idea is to make a square cushion with just one big block on the front and something else on the back. This flower should be big enough for an 18X18 inch one. The next one I make will be a normal color wheel, so that the outer part doesn’t have pointy bits but be a plain circle.
