Dresden Ladies Quilt Block

January 27, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Registrations are closed for this event

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 designed a very special, yet simple to duplicate, ladies face specifically for that embellishment.  Due to the simplicity of the design, the ladies can have many looks—What will you make, a native American? A lovely Geisha? A Biblical Mary? A favorite iconic woman of your own?  Your choices, both style and fabric will determine the center design.  You may choose to embroidery a Kamon, weave a dream catcher, embroider a favorite verse or saying—and, if made for a gift, make a pretty dedication to the lucky recipient, fussy cut an appliqué or use a focus fabric.  Project includes directions for constructing simple blades, perfect circles and points; designing and planning your characters; face drawing, or use the included appliqués; easy turned appliqué technique; some decorative stitching, quilting suggestions and a bit of color theory.
