I went on a retreat last year sometime, don't ask me when cause I'm getting too old to remember all the details of life! Anyway, a lovely woman named Bankie was also there at the retreat and she was working on this wonderful pattern by Edyta Sitar called Dresden Star. I fell in love at first site of this scrumptious pattern. As soon as I got home I went to the quilt store to get all the supplies to make this beauty! I even got the templates and they were a whopping $5.00. That's what I call a bargain!
After my trip to the quilt store for all the supplies I needed to complete my very own Dresden Star I began getting all the pieces cut out and ready to start sewing. That day I made one block and was so amazed at the ease of this pattern. It sure looks a lot more complicated. Well, even though I got it all cut out and one block complete I had to set it aside. Life sometimes gets in the way of my creative side. I knew I'd get back to it and last week I did.
I did have a bit of trouble with the large triangles and I wrote Edyta with a question, well she must be really busy cause she never got back to me. I was a bit disappointed about that because I also make and sell weaving tools and my customer service is 100% always, and I just expect the same. Oh well, I just kept plugging along and everything ended up working out so all is well.
I am extremely happy with this one, and it's for ME!
Hope you love it too.
