A Splash of Dresden Sunshine

I have been working on appliqueing these Dresden plates since December last year and I am happy to say it is progressing really well.  As with all my projects, progress is a little slow as I am only a part-time quilter.  There are days when I am in the office that I wished to be at home quilting away but one's got to pay the bills and etc.
It's been really fun and therapeutic to work on this project as the vibrancy of the colors always put a smile on my face after a long day at work.  Nothing like a good color and quilting therapy to chill out with in front of the TV which is really only there for background noise.
Oh... Let's not forget it's Valentine's Day today - Happy Valentine's Day to all the quilters out there.  May your day be splashed with rays of sunshine and love from whatever form it comes in ie. a smile from a good looking guy on the tram/train, a huge cuddle from your kids, a parcel from the postie, your fabric stash and so forth.

Seeing it's a Work In Progress, I thought I'll link up to WIP Wednesday


  1. Beautiful, I love the fun, bright colors:)

  2. Wonderful Dresden Plate! How patient! Congratulations!

  3. So cheerful, I love the colors, there was a Dare to Dresden hop recently and it started getting me to think it would be fun to try out making some dresdens, are you using any type of rulers?
