Post 3, Dizzy Dresdens: Get the Point!
In this installment, I show you all four completed dresdens. I ran into a little bit of trouble with getting my points nice and crisp as well as putting them together. Swing through here for hard knock advice!

Post 5: Dizzy Dresdens: The pieces are done, Man!

Woot! Finished the top and back for the quilt. In this post, I show you how I set in the corner dresdens, why  shouldn’t sew late at night, and some crazy math!

The quilting begins. Not a lot of technical details here, just going through the thought process. I also share a funny story of my pig headedness getting me nowhere!

  2. Such a great effect from striped fabric. I like your take on it better. Very creative. I like how you can just fly and bring yourself into what you do.
