Dresden Star Finish!

She's finished! I finished my Dresden Star Quilt.  She ended up being 64" x 78".  

 And of course, I made it reversible.

 The Dresdens petals were made with Darlene Zimmerman's Dresden ruler at 2.5".  I made points on both ends and machine sewed them on to white Squares.

 I started out with a layer cake of 3 Sister's Oasis and then added coordinating fabrics from my local quilt shop.  She was such fun to make.  It will be hard to see her go, but that's why I make them.  :)

We also had the opportunity to visit some family in the mountains this summer.  Oh, it was so beautiful, I didn't want to come back.  But Back we are and next week my little sweeties start school and I have mixed emotions of excitement and melancholy. Motherhood is bitter, sweet. 

I hope all is well and your summers were great too! April @ Little Mama Hen.


  1. What a great finish! Pretty!

  2. Dresdens are my favorite quilt block. Super sweet quilt!

  3. So gorgeous. A beautiful finish indeed

  4. Such a tender colour and fabric combination! The Dresden just go so well with them!

  5. So so so beautiful! I just love dresdons and I have not seen this pattern before.

  6. That is totally impressive, especially to have a pieced backing as well that looks just as good as the front! Lovely fabrics!
