The Jane Stickle retreat was held early November. The next several posts are going to be about the projects I worked on.
A year ago at the November 2022 Jane Stickle Retreat, I pieced Dresden points. This fall I added the narrow cream triangle between each point and sewed 18 Dresden plates.
This picture is supposed to be horizontal but I'm still learning how to do things with the new computer. This is just 5 of the 18 plates.
I bought this kit years ago at Lolly's sometime between 2006 and 2010. The pattern is called Dresden Star and was designed by Edyta Sitar.
Edyta has updated the pattern with brighter fabrics that look much happier than the browns she originally used.
Another retreater was watching me piece these plates and told me she also purchased the kit years ago. I asked her if Lolly's had a quilt on display and she said yes and that it was more colorful than Edyta's original brown quilt.
Of course I didn't purchase just one kit, I don't make little throws, I bought two kits so I could make a full sized quilt which is why I ended up making 18 plates.
The next step is to applique these plates onto the background fabric then add the circles to the inside. I'm not going to hand applique these plates, machine applique will be used. That will happen sometime this winter.
