I've been intrigued with a couple of quilt blocks. One is the Grandmother's Flower Garden and the other was the Dresden Plate. I love that both of these are fairly old designs, made by our grandmothers and before. I recently purchased a Layer Cake and Jelly Roll of the Kansas Troubles Butterfly Garden that was on special online and while I was at it I ordered the easy Dresden Plate ruler from http://missouriquiltco.com/shop/.
I got the order so quick - and when I did I just loved the fabric. It is so soft and wonderful and the colors are just what I'm drawn to. I just found out that the designer of this fabric lives only about an hour away from me!
Anyway - I couldn't wait to tear open the Layer Cake and see what I could do with it.

And now there are 4! These went surprisingly fast for me. I started at a landmark...on the above one it was the upper and lower light blade, then I just worked my way around chain sewing picking up the next piece as I went. The background pieces are 20" square.
