Lets get cutting…
This quilt is made up of 3 dresden blocks, backed onto a solid white centre panel
Cut out 20 plates from each of the three fabrics shown above, sew them together in a repeating pattern, each flower is made up of 20 plates.
(note: one of each print will be missing from each dresden flower)
Press seams open
From the white fabric cut a 23” x 70” piece for the top. Cut two 23” x 4 ½” pieces and from the remaining piece cut three 5” circles.
Hand sew with large tacking stitches around the edge of the circle.
From the cardstock cut a 4” circle. Place the cardboard circle onto the white circle and pull thread to gather around. Press. Remove cardstock, and repeat with remaining two circles.
Hand sew the circles in place to the centre of each dresden flower
Cut 3” strips from the interfacing, roughly 5” long, and fuse to the reverse of the flower edges, fuse the inner edge first. Trim away excess interfacing and fuse edging.
Take the dresden ruler and mark the curve 1/8” from outer edge, trim away excess.
Fold the white top piece in half lengthways to find the centre, and pin the first dresden flower in place. Go ahead and pin the remaining two, either side.
Sew ¼” from the outer edge and again at ½” from the outer edge.
Sew ¼” inside the white circle.
Baste to the wadding.
For the backing, sew a white strip ( 23” x 4 ½” ) either side of the Hares on blue fabric, cut to measure 23” x 32 ½”
Cut the remaining Hares on Beige fabric into two 23” x 15” and join either end of the white strips.
Baste to other side of wadding.
Quilt using your preferred method.
Binding: Cut 1 ½” strips from the red fabric and join together to make one long strip, sew to the front edge of the table runner, press over ¼” and hand sew to the reverse.
