Practice makes...dresdens!

I'm in 2 bees this year. Cherie is in both of them, so I'm making blocks for her this month. First up for the Sew Beautiful Bee: a dresden plate using Amy Butler's Soul Blossoms fabric. I was a little nervous about this one, so I made a practice block using my own fabric first.
Orange Brown Dresden
Cherie based her instructions off of this tuturial from Sew Mama Sew. Really fun! I think I'll make this into a pillow.

Soul Blossoms Dresden
With that one under my belt, I had the nerve to cut into Cherie's fabrics. I'm really happy with the way it turned out. Hope you like it, Cherie!

It's beautiful - but I know what you mean about being afraid to cut someone else's fabric!
