Another Dresden Wedge Quilt (102)

Remember this quilt?  And it’s tutorial?  Well, I sure am glad I wrote it because I needed to remember how to make this quilt, it had been so long!

I had the warm colors of the Nest line (Valorie Wells) available, so I decided to make this exact quilt in more feminine colors.

I had these wedges cut all the way back in July, but obviously it took me a while to make this one.  But, I’ll be honest, I love the look of “twin” quilts.

I even used the matching DS Quilts fabric for the backing, and hand stitched the dresden plates to both.  I quilted them both with a loopy design, and I used Kona Raffia for both of their bindings.  The measurements ended up being the same after washing, 38.5 x 47.5 inches.

 I’m glad to have this one finished.  Hope you like looking at it as much as I do!  Thanks for stopping by!
