WIP Wednesday...the one with the Dots

If you have been a reader of my blog for at least a year, you will remember when I made this block for a blog hop about a year ago...or maybe longer.

Anyway I was going to make a pillow out of it. Then I didn't because I decided to make more.
Then I decided to make them into a quilt, but each one was already quilted to the batting. So I took a page from Maureen and decided to quilt as I go. Each block and then my hubby helped me figure out a layout. After that, I cut white pieces and quilted them to go in between all the Dresden blocks. It took me forever almost.

Now I am finally done with that and I made a back and I am quilting the front to the back.  Yay me!
 You can kind of see some of the quilting on the white part here. I took this picture Sunday.

Here it is laid out and pin basted. I hope to get it done this week so I can bind it. Wait until you see what I have in mind for the binding!! See you soon. Linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced.

  11. Charlotte in teaching we called that "monitor and adjust" - start one way and then go another when you saw a better way. Changing from a pillow to a quilt was a great decision because this is gorgeous! blessings, marlene
