Well, after a week of life’s distractions I’m back at it. (And by the way, my car is in the shop getting fixed up as I type this. Insurance covered all damages.) This is technically the next entry in the Conversion Project, but I sized this version of the pattern at 16″ for ease of use and publishing. I’m going to do the 24″ version later this week, but because it needs piece-gluing due to the large size, it’s going to have to wait a couple of days.
Fabrics used in the sample are Minimalista and Tule.
I designed this pattern because I like to break the rules. I think the appliqued dresdens are extremely difficult to do properly, and I think if one can make the same thing a different, more precise way, why not give it a try. Plus I just think applique like this is super fussy to get right what with all the super precise shapes having to meet in a perfect circle. If you aren’t offended yet by my disregard for tradition thanks for sticking around!
Anyway, if you make a paper pieced dresden using my pattern please let me know, I’d love to share!
Look! Joanne made her own Cheat’s Dresden, so we know it works! Woohoo!
Thank you, Susan for sharing this free pattern! I think it is just awesome! Hope you don’t mind if I share this, with a link back, on my facebook page at http://facebook.com/sewfreshquilts
Oooops… *Embarrassing* Sarah… So sorry!
Lol No problem Lorna, go for it!
Thank you, Sarah! I cannot wait to give this a try. Dresdens are my favorite and I have yet to sew one! I will start with your PP. I actually never thought of them as appliqued.
Downloaded it … Pinned it … will let you know when I make it!
Awesome, thanks Serena, please do!!
