Designing Monday

Here is my newest project.  It is block # 341 from Vol. 4 of the 100 Blocks series.  I am making a 12 inch quilt to hang for Christmas.  I love to do simple embroidery so this should be fun.

I made the same little quilt last year for a friend and ran into the same problem.  This little block includes a small Dresden plate.  The instructions call for 16 blades for the plate.  When I got them all sewn together, they would not lie flat, so I took out one blade.  Still wavy, so I took out one more and now it works fine.  I had forgotten about this little dilemma that I ran into last year.

Hope you are enjoying your days of Advent and looking forward to the season as much as I am.

Stop by Judy's blog  to see some beautiful designs today.
