    Whew, there's a lot of work to that . . . Am I too lazy?
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

              This is similar to but a little more complicated than the Nancy Zieman method. You can watch this Youtube to compare the process. Especially note the last half of the video where Nancy makes her own stripped fabric for a unique design of the Dresden.

              Speaking of Dresdens, I was at a local quilt show this past weekend and saw some GORGEOUS quilts! One of them used a Dresden type pattern to make a beautiful floral quilt. Here are some pics:

                Very neat idea - tube strip cut dresden blades and dresdens cut using the kalediscope method - something new to try! thanks for sharing

                    I am getting way too many ideas from this forum! Sewbee, thanks for sharing that youtube link. Blondie, what a beautiful block at your link - too difficult for me though. Someday.

                    I got a sewing machine for my husband. Good trade, huh!?!

                      Blondie,
                      That's really cool! I definitely bookmarked that one! In the first picture it reminds me of a wagon wheel. I could see it made out of western fabrics with some star blocks thrown in and some four or nine patch. Food for thought!!!! LOL

                        It will take a life time to do all I love with just the Dresden EZ ruler! Wow. I love them all! Thanks for sharing these sites with more information than I will ever show my sewing machine - yet, my dream basket is filling daily! These were fun, and agreeing with Patticakes, the path down Blogland is sure steep and slippery. I remind myself everything I start clicking that quilting is better done in front of another machine - but I sure love looking and reading! Debi

                          Hi Ladies
                          I have to agree with everyone. I don't have that kind of time but would I ever love to do this.
                          also the nancy zieman link was one I have watched before and wow, that woman always amazes me.

                          Debi and Patti - I have learned to set a timer when I sit down at the computer. And I have had to divvy up the time between forum here, blog surfing and occasional game on facebook. LOL. The computer will seriously eat my time up.
                          Another reason that I limit my blog surfing is a very personal one: When I see how brilliant and productive and talented and etc that these women in blogland are, I feel very overwhelmed by my mediocrity. LOL.
