National Quilting Day – March 15, 2014

Posted Monday, March 17th, 2014 in Patterns, Quilt Shows | Tags: , , , ,

Did you celebrated National Quilting Day on Saturday? I spent the day with friends at the Gathering of Quilters in Fort Wayne. I have gone to the Gathering for several years and think this was the best I have attended. The quilts in the show were wonderful and there was a nice mix of vendors. Of course I had to purchase some goodies. I found two (new to me) panels to make cloth books for Eli and Samantha.  Kris and I found a pattern with templates for a different style dresden plate block. We both purchased it and made a block when we went home. You can see Kris’ block here.

I pulled fabric from my stash to try the block. I haven’t stitched it to a background fabric or stitched the circle to the block.

The name of the pattern is “Dresden Star”  by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts. The pattern and templates can be purchased at her online store under Traditional Quilt Patterns.

This looks like Spring 🙂 I like how you used the same fabric for the blades and circle…really makes that pink pop! I had a great time on Saturday too 🙂

Very pretty block. I recognise your fabric. I have some in my stash too. Was it a fat quarter from the exchange?
