I started this little mini-dresden last year before we moved. Emily Herrick sent a little bundle of her Technicolor fabric line to me to play with! Karie (instagram @karietkq) and I bonded over our love of turquoise and orange, I knew a mini-quilt with these fabrics would be really fun!
I used some turquoise 50wt aurifil for the loop-de-loops and some orange 50wt for the flower center.
I was originally planning an all orange border but decided scrappy would be more fun. And yes, I think it is!I quilted it on Monday during a little sewing meet up at Becky's house and finished binding it in the parking lot at Wegman's on Tuesday where we all met for lunch!
Kim (@gogokim), who I met in line at Costco, Becky (@sarcasticquilter), Karie, and I both met online. It's so fun to have quilty internet friends to connect with throughout the day. It's even better to have them close enough that you can meet up and sew, chat, eat and fabric shop together!

I'm so blessed to have such great friends! It was so nice to just be our weird fabric-loving selves together! I highly reccomend getting out from behind our screens and really see each other! It's a valuable connection that can't be replaced by our devices.
I'm linking up today with Kim's new Saturday sewing linky!! So fun! Go check it out. Always a great way to get motivated and motivate others!
