I decided recently that I wanted to do a dresden block project combining vintage flair and modern construction. This is what I came up with:
How I made this?
and then cut out Dresden shapes from the strata above using:
Like the images below:
This ruler, the (Wright EZ Quilting Easy Dresden Quilt Tool Set) is awesome and makes the job so easy!!
Fold the wedges right sides together at the wide top and sew 1/4" from the edge.
Turn all your Dresden points to the right side and clip the point to the stitches
Sew 20 of these Dresden shapes together to make a Dresden block/round/flower
I covered the centre with a circle also covered with lace and top stitched to the middle of my block/round/flower.
Your Dresden is ready to appliqué to wool felt (for a candle mat or centre piece) or to background fabric. Vintage, Easy Dresden!
I hope you are all having a great Tuesday!❤️
