This weekend I played around with my Swirly Twirly Dresden block and made one using a black background. I saw all the other great blocks using black and I knew I had to make one. Here it is…
I used some leftover scraps of Kate Spain’s Cuzco line. I wish I had more…I want to make a whole quilt like this. I love it!
And now for the very exciting news! I finally have a digital copy of the Texas Teardrops templates thanks to my lovely daughter. We sat down yesterday and finally tackled the templates. I’m happy to announce that they are ready to share. I’m tweaking all the details over the next couple of weeks so stay tuned! It’s almost time for some Texas Teardrops!!!
Have a great Sunday night!

I love how your block turned out! Black just seems to make this block pop! So excited for you with the Texas Teardrops! Congratulations and yay for helpful daughters!!!

The block looks fabulous with the black background. Sometimes daughters can be so helpful.
That is a great block! Can’t wait for the info regarding Texas Teardrops cause I love that pattern too!

What a striking pattern! Looks really neat in black and in white. Would you recommend being comfortable with a regular dresden plate first? (I’ve never dared to dresden.)
Oh that looks awesome too!
Wow, unique and stunning =) nice work!
I love your block. The black really makes the dresden stand out. Cant wait to see what a Texas Teardrop looks like.
