Large Dresden Wall Hanging


It has been a few years….you think I am exaggerating but I am not! Here is proof! Oh yeah….I chose the fabric for this finish 2 1/2 years ago!

Well regardless….it is done!!!

Large dresden

Before I could finish it I had to rip out a ton of quilting I had done it quite some time ago. I am so glad I took the time to do that! I took a different approach this time and it looks MUCH better! You can see the quilting much better from the back…

My first thought was to use it as a table topper.

But then I remembered my sewing room was curtain-less! I moved the curtains I made for my sewing room to my kitchen. So….

Love it!!
