I Have "Sewing Deficiency"

I have had a really busy week and have not done so much as glance at my sewing machine all week! Today, my husband is away for the day so I have been happily mucking around with fabric most of the day.

I bought a kit to make a dresden plate pillow a couple of weeks ago at Mad About Patchwork and it called out to me this morning when I did a survey of potential projects to work on today. I used red thread and a machine blanket stitch to sew the dresden plate to the background fabric.

 The pieces for the dresden plate were already cut out so this pillow came together quickly. I quilted in the ditch around the red border and around the "plate".

Now, back to the machine--I have a couple more little projects I would like to work on today. 


  1. How fun! I made something similar that I will post this week...great idea to make it into a pillow!

  2. A short, sweet project sure can bring a smile and that good feeling of a completion. What a nice dresden, too, it deserves the pretty red border ~

  3. I love the pillow - Dresden plates are so versatile and fun!
