I Did It!


 The Last Day of Beautiful Creations.......................

 

First time for a blog hop and I did it! I would like to thank  Madamme Samm and Christine for  sharing this opportunity. I have enjoyed seeing  the beautiful creations along the way. The only way I could describe these creations was WOW!

 I have never made a Dresden before so with a borrowed ruler from Marjorie and a couple tutorials the challenge was on. So here we go........................................



 The choosing of the fabric and seeing the end results has even had me surprised with the end results.





 I  have learned lots of things along the way from cutting out with the ruler, to making the petals and piecing it all together.

                                              Looks like the tail of a kite. I love kites.

                                                 All pinned together
                                             
                                                                  All nicely pressed

 Once I had the Dresden's done what  should I create with them.
 I decide on a table runner for Christmas.  I added a small amount of FMQ around the Dresden's and the border.


                                                       Finished!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Again thanks to everyone for sharing and may the more beautiful creations become part of all of our lives. 

Here's are the other beautiful creations ....................enjoy!
