When you're in the middle of the project and have nothing new to show, then it's time to talk about what you hope to do. Anyway, that's my theory.
So with no further ado, I present the Dresden Sunburst:
The Dresden Sunburst comes from the magazine Traditional Quiltworks. I've taken several magazines over the years, and have liked all of them, but I must say Traditional Quiltworks was my very most favorite. Sadly, I don't think it's being published any longer. I made a major move, and didn't renew my subscription. When I finally did consider renewing it, I couldn't locate the magazine. (If I'm wrong about Traditional Quiltworks no longer being published, please let me know.)
I've kept the Dresden Sunburst pattern in a notebook all of these years--well past 10 years--with the hope that one day my skills would be good enough to tackle this lovely quilt. One big hang-up that prevented me from trying this quilt earlier is all the white space that just begs for some fancy quilting. Until recently, I found it very intimidating. However, with my increasing confidence in my free motion quilting abilities, I expect that the day I start this quilt could actually be on the horizon. (If I ever narrow down my current WIP list.)
