Atomic Snowball

I've been waiting for the right challenge to incorporate Kim Lapacek's Dresden Neighborhood.  Since this is the last month of the Focus Through the Prism challenge, I figured I'd better use it.  The challenge block was the snowball.  The center of my Dresden Plate is a snowball block.  The white is a bunch of bits of fabric glued to a base, then sewn down.  I added a few red snippets to make it look good.  The center and the outside are quilted with a red iridescent thread.  The blades on the Dresden are quilted with a white iridescent thread.  I call it Atomic Snowball because I see the center is exploding in space.

I have to thank Kim for her Dresden Neighborhood pattern.  Without that inspiration, I would have never made the blades of my Dresden different lengths.
