Week #

Thanks for more posting & sending me pics of your first blocks!

If you’re not part of my Facebook group, Dresden Quilt Workshop,

head over there & sign up so you too can share & see all the progress.

This week we will refer to

A Blooming Day quilt, page 27.

You’ll be making 4 blocks that are adjacent to our “Quilts” block from Week 1.

This is why I thought it was important to start with that block.

Do you see that now?

Between the 4 blocks,

there could be up to a dozen fabrics bumping into that block’s fabric.

The designer in me doesn’t want the same fabric bumping into itself!

This week you’ll make:

4 Dresden Filler Blocks, assembly on page 30.

Each block has a Tiny Dresden plate in the corner.

Lots of fabric selections this week, yay!

& more Tiny Dresden blocks too, double yay!

All I can say is Mary Ellen’s Best Press is one of my best friends

because it helps to keep the bias edges of these blocks stable

so my blocks will be the right size

(& the shape of a triangle, Lol!!)

when they’re finished.

My blocks & I aren’t perfect,

just precise, because of the nice tools available.

I hope you’re able to find them, but if not, I have them on my website SuznQuilts.com.

BTW, I still have kits available on my website too.

FYI, you might notice that I didn’t applique the plates to the background squares

until I was ready to assemble the blocks unlike how I made A Blooming Day in the book.

The reason is because of all the different fabrics that I used in each block.

I wanted to be able to audition the fabrics again before the final assembly.

Sometimes things don’t turn out the way I picture them in my head!

Here are the 4 complete Dresden Filler Blocks.

Spoiler alert… we may be making the other half of these blocks next week.

Come back next week & see for sure.

Just Keep Sewing…

Susan
