Dresden Kitchen Topper

Hi! Did you all have a good weekend? We had the painters over this weekend to paint our sash windows, I've been waiting for so long to have them done! I'm pleased to say our list of jobs to do around the house is slowly, (very slowly) being checked off ;) once we've got our front door all painted, I'll share some pic's on the blog.

Last week I finished up this dresden table centre for the dining room. I needed a quick project to use up my new stash of fabrics I got from Kerry's shop. I'm already making a quilt using alot of the prints, but I needed a quick quilty fix ha! I recently got an EZ Dresden acrylic template by Darlene Zimmerman, which turned out to be fab! I made a dresden last year from my own pattern, which was a bit of a headache... but this one came together nicely. Though next time, I would like less petals with a bigger scallop design. 

I've got a couple of posts planned for this week, so check back soon! Jessie, xo

So, the pinwheel conundrum is now turning into the Dutch pinwheel quilt! I couldn't help myself :) I love the design so much, I had to re-create the exact same block as before but this time with white background. I'm either going to have 9 or 12 blocks in total, depending on borders etc (which I haven't figured out quite yet). 

Most of the fabrics I used are from my new stash I received from Kerri at sewdeerlyloved. Aren't they just adorable!! I've been eyeing up her shop for quite a while and when I saw she had a delivery of the 'Old New' collection by Lecien I decided I needed to act fast! Those cherries are too good to resist :D
I hope you all have a fun jubilee weekend! My mum is holding a street party on Sunday, so we're going to have tea and cucumber sandwiches (queeny style!) with all the neighbours hehe! Jessie, xo
