Sundance Dresden Pillow Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sundance Dresden Pillow Blog Hop.  The lovely ladies at the Fat Quarter Shop are always thinking of the cutest quilty things!  
This adorable pillow (or wall hanging) uses the Creative Grids 18 Degree Dresden Plate Ruler, and it’s so much fun to make.  I had no idea dresden blocks were so easy.  I love how this pattern showcases two prints for each dresden blade.
I used Tiger Lily by Heather Ross for Windham Fabrics.  A layer cake was all that was needed for the dresden block.  I also picked up some extra yardage for the binding.  I love this fabric line!
Just look at those frolicking and dancing girls and adorable forest creatures.  Perfect for my house!
My favorite dresden petal is the swinging girl.  Reminds me of my little gingers.  I combined ruler work, computerized quilting, and free motion quilting for this wall hanging.  I love how it turned out!
This pillow pattern is a low-cost PDF pattern (link below) from Fat Quarter Shop, and it is so worth it!  You will also need this dresden plate ruler.    Kimberly made a great video (link below) explaining how to use this wonderful ruler.
