Dynamic Dresdens

3 hours, demo class with lots of quilts
Lively, detailed demos will show you how to create contemporary or traditional Dresdens while avoiding the typical hazards that have frustrated many quilters in the past. Tips will be shared taking advantage of specialty tools and without specialty tools. Dresden units will lay flat with beautiful points … without applique centers! Dresdens create wonderful opportunities for fussy-cutting special fabrics to create spinning or kaleidoscopic effects. Dresdens may be cut from pieced strips to show layering effects. We can even insert piping into wedges for more layering effects and use ghost wedges to fool the eye! You’ll learn the Dresdens Over The Edge finish and a traditional finish so your quilts can be tailored to your preferences.
