Dresden Ohio

It was amazing!  I had been working on this Dresden Ohio quilt and then, Susan posted it as the block of the week for her Dresden Quilt Workshop Challenge!  I had so much fun working on this quilt, and I'm having lots of fun working on the DQWC, too, even if I am lagging behind a bit!
I started Dresden Ohio with a set of 3 kitted up fabrics (1 yd each) that were gifted to me by my friend, Vicki.  Thanks Vicki!!!  I only added 2 additional fabrics into the mix:  the green-grey (star points) and the olive green that forms the Dresden centers.
I finished quilting this little beauty back in October.  That goes to show how behind I am in blogging all of my finishes...I've got sooo many more I still want to post!
I even had enough fabric left over to make the backing (after I found another 1 yd cut of the smaller flower print in my stash).  I just sliced a chunk off of the yard piece, inserted the strip of larger floral between the 2 pieces, and sewed is all back together.  And in the end, I had just enough of that larger floral left to make a hanging sleeve!
