February Bee Block

I suppose it was only a matter of time...

My very first dresden. It's a little bit of a fussy block but not nearly as difficult as I thought it would be. Heather asked for blocks made using this tutorial from Elizabeth at Oh, Frannson. It's a nice large block (16.5") so the pieces don't get too fiddly.

And I really do like how it shows off the various bits of vintage goodness. Because the block is so large I'm contemplating making one to finish into a pillow, maybe with some sweet little Japanese prints. Hmmm????


  1. I am just about to do my first dresden, this is so inspiring- works just great with vintage prints Love it x

  2. Megs,
