Last but not least,

(actually it’s my favorite of my new 4)

#4, with yes, Tiny & Mini Dresden plates!

I used two collections in this quilt;

Gratitude & Preservation both by Moda.

I love how the two collections worked together to add variety to this quilt with lots of coordinating fabrics.

I could use these fabrics over and over and never get tired of them.

I’m sure it’s the whole low contrast thing that I love about this quilt,

but it was also really fun to make.

Chain piecing saves a lot of time and thread.

And every time I was making a Dresden plate I couldn’t wait to see how it turned out.

Perfect every time!

I’m not perfect, I just sew with precision!

2 good tips, start with good quality fabric and use Best Press to give the fabrics more body.

Chris tested this pattern for me.

She said she loved making the quilt and she helped me decide how to write some of the steps so they would be easy to interpret.

I’m envious of her design wall in her new sewing studio!

Dresdens on the Square is available on my website for $14.00 plus shipping.

Thanks to all of my testers and also to Robin for editing all of my new patterns.

I get by with a lot of help from my quilting friends!

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing what I’ve been making.

Just keep sewing…

Susan
