Dare to Dresden day 2 of our blog hop with Windham Fabrics as our sponsor

Yes today, DAY 2 of  our Dare to Dresden
is our cheerleader in residence. All the way over the pond! 
She will lead us all into cheer. I think she has a megaphone...
you will hear her lol
And she has been pretty excited, well we both
are considering we never had done a dresden before this hop...

Here are our colourful list of Dare To Dresden creators! 
 Good thing it is Friday..
it may take you the weekend
to get through these lovely creations

And Windham Fabrics is our sponsor 
with their I LIKE YOU collection by Amy Sedaris..
They have put up a rather funny post about Amy Sedaris collection..

#3 winners will win these brand new bundles
for top 3 of the day
for overall participation
and for leaving comments.

Ok, I had to pour 2 cups of coffee this morning to get
through all of your lovely creations..
And another day , that welllll, just blew my mind...

( again no easy decision) 

Well if you know me, you know coffee is never far from my thoughts..
this lady just perked my interest...I know she called it a tea pot...I am going to call
it a coffee pot...and she can pour more dresdens if they look anything like this..
Great reds! 

And this lady....welllll, I almost spit out my coffee, heavens, it is coffee
colors for goodness sake....VERY WESTERN theme...I loved it..
and she was worried she was not rise to the top..
but really look at her centers....? get out of here....
The colour choices are wellll perky! ...

( although there were at least 2 others that were close to pushing her aside) 

YEP, "WE" love her. modern, bright, delightful.
and not even a hint of any coffee near this one...lol
Ok, it was a long night, what can I say...GREAT dresdens today ladies...

Cheering you all on...

Oh did I mention, stopping in tomorrow..SATURDAY
for something that will no doubt bowl you over?

  2. Thanks for hosting this... it has been great fun - even though we are only on day two, I have had lots of inspiration!

  3. I was up late hopping around to see what the ladies who shared this day with me had made! After a day of running errands, I was still in overdrive and could not sleep so I got back out of bed and went to blogging! lol

    A few had not posted yet so I am about to go take another peek and see if they are up yet...There are some clever dresdens being shown today!

  30. Wow, how many versions of the Dresdan are there? So far, everyone that I've seen is gorgeous...

  31. Oh I agree - great Dresdens today! What I am really loving about this hop is seeing how many of us have never done a Dresden block before. Way to get us motivated to try something new Mdm Samm!

  32. Am so loving this hop - the top threes have been fabulous and I love all of the other I have seen so far too!

  33. Everyone is doing such a great job! So much variety and fun. :)
    Hopping off to visit.

  34. These dresdens have been stunning since day one! Really enjoying the creativity and uniqueness by these wonderful quilters!

  35. I continue to be amazed at the interpretations being presented - so much creativity and inspiration. Carol, who did not think her Dresdens were up to everyone elses, what can I say - she was so right on with her Dresdens and her story was so funny. What joy to see that confidence building -it happens when you play outside your comfort zone. Judy C
