Swaps and Challenges



Upcoming or In Progress Swaps & Challenges

Due August 2017: Part 1 of the Dresden Swap Challenge.  In the color palette, create 6-12 dresdens to swap. Make 6-12 Dresden plates to swap - any size, any number of plates to create the whole circle, any color scheme within the theme.  The outside edges need to be finished (no raw outer edges!), use clean points or interfacing to prep a round or straight edge for applique.  The inside circle can be left unfinished.  Do not attach these dresdens to a background!  
*Color Palette in Bella Solids: Petunia, Geranium, Mustard, Marigold, Amelia Blue, Betty’s Red Horizon Blue, Turquoise, Iris, Amelia Green, Kelly
