Sundance Dresden Pillow

Sundance Dresden -

I’ve been quietly stitching on a few different projects here, including this great dresden pillow from It’s Sew Emma!

I love how simple the dresden’s are to put together – all straight lines to be sewn here – and how complex they look.

I opted to hand appliqué my dresden in place, since I could do so while hanging out with the family on the couch. You can certainly machine appliqué it in place too!

I added the tiniest bit of quilting, but love how it makes the piecing pop!

You can pick up a kit to make your own Sundance Dresden Pillow here, or just the pattern here. There’s also a fun youtube video, if you are new to dresden’s here – seriously you should try it! I used my own Serenity fabrics, and love the soft and subtle color shifts within the dresden.

    As always, your work is beautiful. I love that you worked on this while with your family. Long ago I did the same type of thing and I have many wonderful memories.

    Oh how I love your fabrics, Amy – can’t wait to get my hands on some. They are so gorgeous, and I love the look of the old fashioned block with the mod fabrics. Also, you did a really good job on your appliqué – I’m impressed – haven’t mastered that skill yet…
