This is the cover quilt for my pattern Dresden Star.
I designed it to introduce my set-in piecing workshop students to a block found in a vintage quilt by local shop owner, Karen at The Little Red Quilt House in Medina, Ohio.
This version measures 44" by 48".
I used a layer cake of 10" squares called Good Karma from Moda designer, Stephanie Ryan plus a yard and a half of white background fabric.
I love this picture of it taken in February with a little snow on the ground!
The decision to use white as the main borders had more to do with "not enough fabric" than anything else, but I think the two white borders do a great job of setting off the scrappy second border.
The quilt has a crisp look that I love!
The original test block I did on the fly for this block is in the center of this piece.
(Read my previous posts about experimenting with this block by searching for "Dresden star".)
I ran another test of the piecing process as part of a Kaffe Fassett mini swap on Instagram.
The pattern for the quilt is available in my Etsy Shop HERE.
If you indulge in it, I urge you to adapt the block to your own ideas and settings!!
Thanks for considering my entry in the Original Designs category at the Blogger's Quilt Festival!
