Tweaking the scale of the Dresden “blades” just a bit creates an entirely new look to this lovely standard quilt block.  And, gives us four perfect places that beg for embellishment. Jill has been hard at work designing variations of the dresden wedge. Your choices, both style and fabric will determine the center design. Project includes directions for constructing simple blades, perfect circles and points; easy turned appliqué technique; some decorative stitching, quilting suggestions and a bit of color theory. Price of class includes patter. Kits are available.  Class is not included in passport.
