Here's what is residing on my design wall today. Yes, it's something new! Amazing.
These were last year's Brown Bag Blocks. I put the precut strips of fabric for the baskets in the brown bag along with a cute little dresden plate ruler and the background fabric. Each person who got the bag was asked to make a half dresden plate and then baste it to the background using a large machine stitch. I had 10 blocks which included my sample block. It's going on the back with the names of the block makers on it...or at least that is my plan!

Hum, I may need to hit JoAnns to see if there is a bigger size than the black but smaller than the purple. I can do that sometime this week before I need to sew the blocks together.
On to the weekly goals...
