January 2018 Dresden Neighborhoods

Hi everyone!  The first month of 2018 has come to an end which means the first month of the #DresdenNeighborhoodSAL is over.  Of course, if you didn’t get your first Dresden Neighborhood block done you can still catch up!  Not a problem at all!  I wanted to do a post to share with you what some folks in my “Quilt and Dream Along with Kim Lapacek” facebook group worked on in January.  It has been absolutely amazing to see all the different version folks have been making out of “my” pattern – completely surreal!
