I had a delightful time with Hastings (Nebraska) Quilter’s Guild last night, presenting Let’s Play Drezzup to about 50 people. This program is in three parts:
- A hands-on experience to make, trim and join the Dresden blades. Everyone takes home her samples.
- A trunk show of blocks showing the endless variations possible with Dresden Plate.
- A sampling of new and old Dresden quilts with quirks, oddities and interesting details.
I have to rush to fit it all in one hour but it’s getting good feedback. Whenever I pull this trunk show out in preparation for a program, I get all excited about Dresden Plate again! I could spend the next five years on these quilts alone.
