This year, I'm going to try to combine 2 quilt-alongs into one. I've done a Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt for the past two years and intend on participating again this year. Persimon Dreams has a quilt along that I saw on Instagram called Dresden Neighborhood, that makes funky houses from a dresden plate quilt block.
The RSC18 color for the month of January is icy blue. I pulled as many icy blues from my stash as I could find and then added a few blues that weren't quite as pale as I would've liked, but I needed more variety.
This week, I got the "foundation" ;) of my Dresden Neighborhood in Ice Blue pretty much done.
I still need to add the center circle (I think I have some snowflakes on pale blue somewhere - just gotta find it!) and then I'll sandwich and quilt this block. I'm going to make a large quilt, but I'll be doing each block separately in a quilt-as-you-go style. There's a lot of quilting which will involve spinning these blocks around so much that it would be too unwieldy if it were full-sized.
In other news, I'll be participating in the Put a Little Love in Your Quilt blog hop Feb 5-8 at Just Let Me Quilt, with a great giveaway!
I'm linking up at ScrapHappy Saturday and posting on Instagram with #DresdenNeighborhood.
