Week #

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!
