Pretty Peppermints

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

Look familiar?

That's right.  My Christmas Dresdens quilt is now a pattern!  Just in time for the holidays!  This quilt makes me so happy to look at so I'm excited to share all the details with you.  Pretty Peppermints is the perfect new twist on an old-fashioned block.

Pre-orders are now available in MY SHOP.
All orders will ship next week.

If you're a store owner and would like information on wholesale pricing please shoot me an email at or convo me through Etsy.

Happy Quilting!


  1. They DO look like peppermints!! YUMMY! So very Christmas.. reminds me of Grandmas house :)

  2. Congrats :) I love the look of this Mother loved Christmas and if she was still with me, I'd want to make her this one!

  3. What a sweet, sweet quilt. Love it! :)

  4. Just ordered it ! Thanks, it will look so fun at Christmas for years to come!

  5. Love this quilt....Need to order

  6. Yay!!! I want one really really bad...will need to get one quickly. Have admired yours ever since I first saw it.

  7. I just love your pattern! :o)
    I keep coming back to it. :o)
    I received your 5" square of fabric!!
    Thanks so much!! As we get closer to the
    give a way date, I will disclose my plan.
    hugs. Trish

  8. It's ADORABLE Amber! I love the bright Christmas-y colors. And I LOVE LOVE that binding too -- it's perfect for such a cute quilt!

  9. This is a very sweet pattern. I think it's one I'll make but without the Christmas look. I'll make my peppermints mostly shades of white with blue specks ... maybe some dotty fabric. My dad always had peppermints in his pockets and it was always a big deal for his grandchildren to try to sneak one out of his pocket. It was always a fun game and a great means to interaction between them and my Dad. My Dad died 8 years ago and a quilt like this to cozy up under ... all those peppermints to remind me of him ... would make me very, very happy. It's definitely on my to-do list.

    Thanks for the design!

  10. That is gorgeous!!! I have always wanted to try Dresden plates. Love it!

  11. Cute, cute Ambs! Love it. The title fits perfectly. :)


  12. Absolutely GORGEOUS----Ooooh I am in LOVE with these!!!

  13. Thanks Amber! I received my pattern yesterday. Can't wait to get going on it. I had already started picking up fabrics after seeing the pictures on your blog a while back. I am planning on making them for the twin beds in our guest(grandkids)room. They should really brighten up the room! I love that they can be Christmas or not. None of the fabrics I picked have Christmas designs, but the red and greens do work for Christmas but any other time of the year also. Judy

  14. It looks so cute hanging in the shop! I especially love how tiny you made the dresdens, and I love your striped binding.

    ps. thanks for lending me your bias tape makers :)
