The making of a Dresden Quilt

I had a custom order for a dresden much like the Happy Dresdens currently in my shop. I thought it would be neat to show the progress of the top coming together in pictures. Usually I forget to document these things and am really trying to get better at it! (not mentioning the utter failure in atempts to blog more. lol)

Cutting the fans. laborious. But I like arranging things, so, alright. 😉

Now the fans have been made into “Flowers” and are chillin’ on my design wall. Although the quilt will be for a boy, so maybe not flowers. Throwing stars? Gears? oh, sure.

Image

Then the throwing stars are sewn onto a fabric block, a center piece is added, and finally, I blanket stitched around all the stars. While marathoning all seasons of Parks and Rec. I love the weekend.

Adding the border!

Top = finished! now on to basting and quilting!

I love seeing the backside of not only the finished piece but the top. It’s very cool to still see the shapes you were working from.

Hope everyone had a great Mem Day Weekend!
