Dresden Mini Quilt




I finished my Dresden Mini Quilt today. It is a tiny one... it only measures 10X10 inches. But I have never done a Dresden before, so I wanted to start small. The Dresden is hand applique to the background fabric and I used Perle cotton thread for the hand quilting. I really like the way it turned out. It makes me think of a sunny summer day every time I look at it. I am going to hang it in my sewing room to add some cheer to my wall. 
I hope you are having a great week!
