I chose these fabrics to make my daughter a Dresden table topper.
These fabrics are mostly Heather Bailey and Amy Butler.
I know that she loves mint green :)

Have you ever made one of these dresdens?
I put the petals on the design board in the order I want them.

I sewed all the petals together and placed them on a linen background.

I stitched the petals and center circle onto the background fabric with a little zigzag stitch and some invisible thread.

I prepared the block for machine quilting.

I used my favorite thread, Aurifil.

I stitched in the ditch on the dresden petals, did a pebble stitch on the back ground, with a little swirl in the center.

The name of the mint green solid is Kona pond.  
I really like it!

I love the back too :)

These dresden blocks are a lot of fun to make!
