Please keep posting & sending me pics of your blocks!
I love seeing the fabric choices that everyone is making.
If you’re not part of my Facebook group, Dresden Quilt Workshop,
head over there & sign up so you too can share & be insprired.
This week we will again refer to
A Blooming Day quilt, page 27.
This time we will be making 2 Dresden Eight-Pointed Star Blocks.
Start by making 2 Tiny Dresden blocks,
then make and sew them into 2 Dresden Eight-Pointed Star Blocks.
Note, the cutting instructions are for 3 blocks and you only need to cut for 2 blocks.
That’s the hardest part this week.
But it’s not hard, right?
Just a fun challenge!
Get to cutting!
FYI, as I was looking at the above diagram I thought it looked like it was about 1/4 colored in so… my brain had to do the math.
Who knew I loved math so much?
Anyway, the entire pieced top (minus the border) is 3,249 square inches.
After you make 2 these blocks, you will have made 800.55 square inches.
So, yes, approximately 1/4 of the top will be pieced when you make this week’s blocks!
It’s going quickly, don’t you think?
Just Keep Sewing…
& posting your progress!
