    Make a "Here Comes the Sun" Dresden Quilt with Jenny Doan of Missouri Star

    Enjoy !

    God, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    The stash to make a quilt to help me cope,
    A quilt to give to comfort those I love in times of hurt, fear and uncertainty.
    And the courage to keep on sewing when life itself seems held together by a single thread of hope.

    Love, dresdens. I posted this little trick a while ago and thought it might help someone who might be considering doing a dresden for the first time.
    Doing a lot of dresdens, and eyeballing the point to be centered was just not working.
    Found an easy way for complete accuracy.
    After you sew, but before you create the point, match up the outside edges and finger press along the folded side.
    (figure 1 below)

    When you open the dresden to press the point, simply match the sew line to the finger pressed line and press! Perfect sides every time.
    (figure 2 below)

    Maybe this method is out there on the web, but I've never seen it. Hope it helps someone.

      This is a great tip! I have only made one Dresden quilt and that was a long time ago. I plan on making another soon and this tip will come in handy. Thanks!!

        I also saw somewhere that the person makes her blades with wrong sides together and then she doesn't have to turn the blades.

          Interesting. Wonder how she gets nice points?

            When I make this pattern I plan to use prints (Tula Pink or KF) and shake it up a little!

              You'll get the same points . You just don't have to turn it right side out. I've done it and it works just fine.

                  So then your trimming the seams and hiding threads while your ironing then. I think I'd rather turn it. lol
