Hello all Mary Ellen here.
Since our guild meeting last week with the “modern” visitors, I’ve been looking at my latest magazines and blog subscriptions through a different lens. I’ve been thinking, as I shared in an earlier post about the show and share projects at that meeting, that many “standard” or traditional projects have a modern look, or could easily be modified to look “modern” with just minor tweaking.
This link to a “tweak” of Dresden Plates, one of my favorite blocks, illustrates my point well I think. Before you click on the link get a mental image of a dresden plate block. I’ll bet it’s a fairly “traditional” image you have in mind. Now click on the link to the modern dresdens. Whole new look, but still very recognizable as a dresden. Cool beans, I think.

Still gathering celebrants in our 40,000 visits party. To enter in the drawings for some very cool prizes, answer this question in your comment below or go back to the “It’s time to celebrate” entry and comment to that one. These are some very nice prizes you’re going for. Hey you lurkers out there, give it a try. We’d like to meet you!
Here’s the fill in the blank for today: I, (your first name) learned to quilt (how or from whom) (how long ago?) Again I’ll go first to get the needle threaded, so to speak!
