I have the urge to make a giant Dresden block. I've been seeing them all over blog-land and the quilting community and really like them. Since you're doing just one it doesn't seem as daunting as a gazillion blocks to make up a whole quilt. I've found a couple of tutorials online:
This one is from Sew Mama Sew
I like it because it has an even number of petals. It also shows a cool technique to get the points on the petals- but I'm not sure I want pointed petals. Also, the block is appliqued to the background.
This one is from Lily's Quilts
I like this one because the finished block is a little bigger and there are no points on the petals. However, there's an odd number of petals. For this quilt the background is pieced into the block.
Both of the tutorials were Quilt-A-Long's and have been finished for some time. But the tutorials are still posted on their blogs.
Have you made a block/quilt like this?
What technique or tutorial did you use?
Do you have any pictures to share?
