Grandma Amos' Dresden's by Deanna
These are some blocks that I my mother gave me that had been her mother's or even her grandmother's. We really don't know exactly how old they are but mom knew that I needed to have them.
I had a vision as to how I wanted this quilt to look when it was finished. So, I proceeded to sew each dresden onto a square of white kona. What I didn't do was think it through before starting. After I finished sewing the dresdens onto my blocks I was planning to set the quilt top with alternating irish chain type blocks. My problem came with the math. I should have done my irish chain block first then measured for my dresden block. I now have to back into the measurements and because that is requiring a bit of thought I ended up setting the project aside for something a bit more of a "no brainer" quilt.
I've decided that now is the time to pick it up and get back at it.
Wish me luck!
