Make the Beautiful Dresden Flower!

Transcript:

Hi, it’s Jenny, from the Missouri Star Quilt Company, and we’ve got another fun project for you using the Dresden Ruler. We looked in our stash, and found a bunch of the old thirties prints, and we cut them on the 5” line on the Dresden ruler.

This takes twenty blades to make this flower, put a center in it, mounted it on a piece of fabric. We used about a yard of ric-rac for the stem and the bottom, and two more Dresden blades for the leaves. We then bordered it with little pieces of, I think they’re 2” squares, all the way around, of the same thirties prints, and we just think this is an adorable thing. It would
be so cute hanging in a kitchen, or a little girl’s room. It would be fun to put two or three of them together.

Anyway, we thought you’d enjoy this fun tutorial from Missouri Star
Quilt Company.

    I tried to make a dresden flower and it did not turn out like yours. The Center was too large. Any ideas?

      Not sure. Could you share a photo? A circle about 4 inches across then appliqued on should work well.
