Dare to Dresden Blog Hop and Giveaway!!!!

Hello!!! Thanks for stopping in!!
Today I am going to share my first ever (and only so far) Dresden quilt block!
I was going for bright cheery...

After  made it I thought it would be perfect for my nieces room so I turned it into a pillow! This was my first pillow too. I like it but it needs more body so I think I'm going to take it apart, layer and quilt it. What's a project without the seem ripper.... right??


And...Since I had a cute baby when I snapped the pictures I thought I would throw her in too....


Dont those cheeks complete the pillow??
