Dresden Window: :

Just after finishing my extra-large Tilly Dresden, I hung it up on the balcony door of my sewing room. I was just making room for finishing up that owl tote. Then something magical happened...

Dresden Window

I stepped back and saw what looked like stained glass work, with how pretty it glowed from the soft light shining through.

My oldest (who's new favorite spot is the sewing room too), was sitting, reading to me, and stopped and said, "Woah!" Which is exactly what I was thinking. I, of course, ran right downstairs and got my camera.

Just looking at it makes me happy. Dresden's really are just completely beautiful!

Perhaps I will make a block or two just to hang in a window?

I hope this makes you happy, too! Wishing a lovely Thursday to all!!

p.s. I will be having a new fabric giveaway happening tomorrow, so please do stop back!

  1. Beautiful dresden piece. I bet that would look wonderful with black edging for a stained glass look. I like hanging quilts in the windows.

  9. Oh how beautiful. I wonder if you could attach that to one of those roll up vinyl blinds somehow. Does anyone have those anymore even? LOL

  10. Wow! That is beautiful! I like how it glows. Definately make a block or two to hang! I can imagine it in voile so that it looks even more like Waldorf window stars. So pretty!
