Blue Dresden Plate cushion

In September 2012 Kristine Pappas organize a Quilt Seminar in Thessaloniki. I went and had a great time. You can read about this in older posts.
Now I want to show you what I did with the block I made at one of the workshops.
We made a lovely Dresden Plate block. Some of us in red, others in blue. 
I made a blue one, took it home, half-finished and looked at it every now and then, when I was going through my stack of fabrics, thinking that I should do something with it !!!!


I changed the colour from the inner circle from yellow to turquoise, put a border around it, made from a vintage apron/dress  that I found in the second hand store and made a cushion. 


Now, that I see the result, I wonder why I didn't do this earlier. It looks so cute! 

This picture was taken at the workshop. All very proud girls !!!
