Dresden Plates - the Blue Version


Each month I make four Dresdens in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color of the month.  This month the color is light blue.  I make one with the RSC color plus b/w, one with the RSC color plus w/b, one with the RSC color and it's complement and one in just the RSC color.   All are on gray backgrounds and have gray rick rack around a polka dot center.

Lovely blocks to add to the project for RSC 2015 - I do like the background fabrics in these blocks.

Sweet harmonies here! I always admire your colorful displays that draw me in from the thumbnail picture on my blog list. You are having great fun with it and it shows!

I always enjoy seeing your Dresdens!
(How big are they, btw? If you told us, I forgot...)

Oooh, la, la, I love these blue Dresdens! What a great idea to use this for RSC! I'm going to love seeing that quilt at the end of the year.

What a nice variety you get by doing those four variations. Have you used the same four types each month? Lovely Dresdens.

Great addition to your collection. The blues and grays look beautiful together.

I love your Dresden Plates. They are turned out great.

Did you just start adding the black and white to the dresden plates? That is going to really tie the quilt together nicely in the end.

Wow, what a commitment. And a great color study. I admire your dedication to the process!

Your Dresden blocks are incredible! I love the different variations that you make each month and can't wait to see them all together.

How tradtional! I can't believe I have never done a dresden block. Maybe I should at least do a table topper.

They are beautiful!

I'm a terrible sewer of Dresden plates! Yours are so nicely even and round.
