Month 5: Architectural Elements for the Dresden Neighborhood Sew Along

Hello everyone!  Are you all excited to see what the theme is for the fifth month of the #DresdenNeighborhoodSAL?  I’m excited that I actually have my entire neighborhood put together in time for this post!  (I did finish April, btw – see it here). I have quite a collection of different fabrics.  I often get asked how I decide what to buy and typically my answer is that the fabric tells me to buy it.  Architectural Element Dresden Neighborhood by Kim LapacekI have been on the lookout for fabrics that look like materials houses could be made of for awhile now and finally my collection is large enough that I could make an entire Dresden Neighborhood out of them!

In fact – I have collected enough special fabrics that I’ve been able to even put together pre-cut Dresden Neighborhood House kits that include architecturally inspired fabrics in varying scales, colors, and textures.  Not all the kits are exactly the same but they do all include 20 architecturally inspired prints.  Stripes Dresden Neighborhood by Kim Lapacek

You can use these 20 fabrics to either make one Dresden Neighborhood or use one (stripes neighborhood) or two or Prism Dresden Neighborhood by Kim Lapacekeven three (prism neighborhood) realistic prints to add an unexpected element to the typically whimsical Dresden Neighborhood.

Now it’s your turn!  Let’s see what you come up with for your  Dresden Neighborhood for the #DresdenNeighborhoodSAL!  Feel free to share photos in my facebook group “Quilt and Dream Along with Kim Lapacek”, post to instagram with the hashtag #DresdenNeighborhoodSAL and/or link up below!
