Hello and happy Friday! Today I’m sharing the beginnings of a project…but not just any project! And actually I was going to wait until I was a little bit further along to share. But. It’s. So. Very. Cute. Already! It’s not secret that I love Dresden blocks…and they are not so very difficult to make at all!
When I was first trying to decide what to make with my Swell Christmas fabric I
The pattern is called Pot Luck (see my original post about Pot Luck here), and it’s a super easy Layer Cake pattern.
Here is the original version…All of the blocks, including the two Dresden blocks, are made with the Layer Cake squares. The quilt is simple enough for a beginner to make, and yet the two Dresden blocks just really make it shine! (Pattern available in paper and in PDF)
I also have two video tutorials that will walk you through making the Dresden plate blocks step by step.
You can find the Bigger Perfect Circles template I mention in the second video here. They are my method of choice for making perfect Dresden block center circles.
There is just something about a Dresden…I’ll be putting this quilt together this weekend and will be able to share it (minus the outer border) next week.
I’ll be back tomorrow with the next edition of the Saturday Seven!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
