A Peaceful Dresden

David got a stack of polyester dresdens that someone he knew found at a garage sale. Who would want to get rid of a polyester dresden? David passed these out as a challenge. I didn't get a chance to take a 'before' picture. But here is the finished block. I decided to let the fabric tell the story of its era.

I used the foolproof zigzag applique technique. The patches were purchased for a few dollars in an embroidery shop in the garment district. Thanks for the challenge David. Peace man!
