I haven’t done a Dresden Neighborhood Round Up in awhile and I thought now would be the perfect time! Before I get to that I do want to give you all a heads up that I only have three patterns left on my craftsy site. If you need any of the templates for the special buildings I’ve created you can find them on my etsy site listed here:
- Dresden Neighborhood Pattern
- Around the World Special Dresden Wedge Templates
- Madison Building Special Dresden Wedge Templates
- Port Washington Building Dresden Wedge Templates
You can check out all the Dresden Neighborhoods I made this year by heading over to the Wrap Up page HERE. I have a link up set up on the bottom of the Wrap Up Page so if you made any Dresden Neighborhoods be sure to share them!
This gorgeous Christmas neighborhood was made by Kathryn McCarty. Her husband hauled out an architecture book to make a domed church! I love that this pattern even made him excited about this! I think she did a fabulous job!
And here is Kathryn McCarty’s second Christmas neighborhood – similar to the first, but completely different. It’s amazing how you can start with the same pattern/concept and completely change the look of it.
Connie Buffham Bailey made this fabulous Upcycled Neighborhood. She used silk neckties for the houses and the background is made from a white shirt! How brilliant is this?!Kerry Mackie made this gorgeous Dresden Neighborhood. I love all the unique shapes fo the windows and the window box with flowers is fantastic!
Maree Rogers added borders to her first Dresden Neighborhood and called it “Scrapville”. I love that she made it into a bigger quilt since she didn’t have more space to display an art quilt. It’s gorgeous and I love that she used her scraps for this!
Here is “The Neighborhood is Going to the Dogs” by Liz Campbell! Liz took a workshop with me in Lawrence, Kansas in 2017 and this is her finish. It was such an amazing group of quilters and still one of the best road trips my family took. Great job Liz and thanks for sharing!
I love this stripey Dresden Neighborhood pattern by Thankful Sanftleben! Great job Thankful!
Vivien Newton made this fantastic “Seasons of Life #2: Memories of the 70s and 80s” Dresden Neighborhood. She used a collection of fabrics from her clothes making years when decorator ducks ruled! Tara Marie Pezzino made this fabulous Christmas Dresden Neighborhood. She used a silhouette from Scan n Cut to create Santa and his reindeer – what a fabulous touch!
And the last Dresden Neighborhood I’ll feature in this post is made by Patricia Hjortness Pollock. She didn’t finish it quite in time for Christmas but it’s so beautiful who really cares? It’s staying on her wall until she decides on the colors for her next one! Love it!
Have you joined my facebook “Quilt and Dream Along with Kim Lapacek” yet? Be sure to do so – it’s become a really fun place to show and share different projects folks are working on from my patterns. In 2019, my goal is to release quite a few more patterns – it should be epic!
