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!
