The minute I saw this project, I new that I wanted to do it!
isn’t it just gorgeous? Here is what it looks like in full (both these pics are from Moda Bake Shop)
I decided (especially after I saw this blog post from Bloom and Blossom on how to cut the wedges for the Dresden Plates from Charm Squares!) to go ahead and give it a try. My mum has the EZ Dresden ruler, which I borrowed and like the Bloom and Blossom post, I just stuck some masking tape on it at 3 and 3/4 inches as it only has markings at every half inch.
The fabric collection I chose is It’s a Hoot by Momo for Moda. The first step was to cut 20 wedges for each dresden (I am making 5 as in Kim’s project)
Then you have to chain piece the wedges together to keep them organised (Kim’s intsructions are awesome, because I followed them like a good girl and didn’t stuff up, so if I can anyone can!)
Then turn the wedges, now I have to confess despite kim’s awesome instructions, I did stick my skewer through a couple because I was impatient and I don’t for the life of me know why or how, but I sewed one wedge wrong sides together instead of right sides together… oopsie (or as my 18mnth old niece says oopies… )
Then lay em out…
Aren’t Dresdens just the coolest?
